Bali Monkey Business – Part III

Latest Installment of Man Meets Monkey Stories from the Island of Bali.

Readers continue to share their stories of encounters with Balinese monkeys.

• Doug Decker, who works for Cathay Pacific, is a frequent visitor to Bali with his Balinese wife, wrote to say:

"A friend of mine, who is also a frequent Bali visitor, recently brought a Canadian friend for a visit in Bali. The new visitor had just picked up a brand new digital camera on his way over in Hong Kong. He was having a lot of fun getting familiar with his new toy, and had some great shots. Then they went to Uluwatu. Well, you know what happened, the monkeys converged and took his camera. He did get it back, but not before it was pretty well destroyed as they smashed it looking for food."

As he and my friend sat commiserating the loss, another monkey snuck up behind them and stole a full package of Imodium out of his pocket. Then the monkey went about 10 feet away, and they watched as he ate the whole thing. If there is any justice, that monkey probably didn't have a bowel movement for at least a week!

Love you updates and insights to Bali, keep up the good work.”

•Ray Jessen shared his "monkey business" encounter:

"Several years ago, I was at Uluwatu with our good friend, I. Wayan Budiasa. I had been there previously and knew about the monkeys. I was walking up the main steps and saw a monkey on the pediment above me, I moved over to avoid and with a long arm, the monkey snatched my glasses. I was not real cool, they were new auto-chromatic, and expensive, Budiasa called a Priest, who offered a treat to the monkey, who dropped my glasses, after haven eaten the plastic nose piece. We went to Denpasar the next day, to an Optic shop Budi knew and had the nose piece replaced."
