Fat Chinese Monkeys Forced to Diet.

The monkeys at the Chinese E'Mei Mountain, a popular tourist destination, has grown so fat that they are now on a strict diet:

... over the past few years, many tourists have complained that the monkeys at the E'Mei Mountain park are lazy, not sociable and move too slow.

"To help deal with the problem, we have drawn up a special exercise plan," Hu Yongzhong, monkey trainer of E'Mei Mountain explained to CCTV.

"Actually, the plan launched in 2000. In this diet plan, every day, one group of monkeys only is allowed to get food from tourists for two or three hours, and then they are driven back the mountain and another group comes in," he noted.

In this way, these monkeys recover their wild characteristics. They begin to find their food such as wild fruits and bamboo shoots on the mountain by themselves.
