Concern over Singapore killings of 357 monkeys in six months

Hong Kong Standard, 30 Jul 2013
Wildlife concern groups have expressed concerns over the killing of 357 monkeys in Singapore in just six months this year. That amounts to an average 59 macaques a month.
Media reports cited Louis Ng, chief executive of the Animal Concerns Research and Education Society as saying that the scale of culling ``seems like we're trying to exterminate the monkeys, not manage the conflicts between them and people.''
The Sunday Times said the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority had euthanized 357 monkeys from January to June, compared with 204 in 2010, 151 in 2011 and 127 last year. Link
