Monkey Kills Abusive Owner

Revenge is a dish best served cold. And in this case, with a coconut. Here's the story of a monkey named Brother Kwan, who was overworked by his master climbing trees and fetching coconuts to sell:

The newspaper said  that Leilit Janchoom, 48, had beaten the monkey whenever he showed any hesitance to climb a tree.

The owner was insistent because he got the equivalent of 4p for every coconut picked.

But the monkey - it is claimed - apparently found the work boring, strenuous and unrewarding.

So, the monkey chucked a well-aimed coconut on Janchoom, and killed him!

First, some things should be considered before we go apeshit (no pun intended) on the owner. Look at how little money the owner was making. He was living in extreme poverty, the likes of which nobody who's lucky enough to be visiting this site have probably ever known firsthand. Yeah, he was abusing a monkey. He was also trying to survive. Doesn't make it right, but it's not a black and white issue, and this is definitely very grey.

Sad that the monkey was overworked. Also, sad that the man was killed.
