One of the two monkeys that have vandalized a neighborhood in Cu Chi District, Ho Chi Minh City in recent days have been ensnared and safely relocated, local authorities said on Friday.

The two monkeys, one short-tailed weighing about seven kilograms and one long-tailed weighing around four kilograms, started causing troubles to people living in a hamlet in Cu Chi District a week ago.

A local leader said the two primates came from another neighborhood.

They climbed on the roofs of local houses, stole chicken eggs from households, and damaged people’s ornamental plants.

Local residents reported the situation to authorities, who then sought assistance from the Ho Chi Minh City forest protection division to handle the apes.

Rangers from the division tranquilized and captured the short-tailed monkey on Thursday.

It was sent to the Cu Chi Wildlife Rescue Station, where it would receive proper care and return to good health conditions before being released back to nature.

The rangers are still searching for the long-tailed monkey.

Wild monkey vandalism has been common in suburban districts like Cu Chi in Ho Chi Minh City.
