Lop Buri provincial livestock officials are preparing to inoculate more than 3,000 crab-eating macaques in the province with anti-rabies vaccine on March 26-29.

 

Mr Charoon Chukiatwattana, the livestock chief and a veterinarian, said Tuesday (March 13) that the 3,000 plus macaques were living at and around Phra Karn shrine and Phra Prang Sam Yod in Muang district.

 

The vaccination was intended to prevent the spread of rabies among the animals and possible spread of the disease to humans, he said, adding that, so far, officials concerned have not found any serious communicable diseases among the monkeys such as ebola or tuberculosis although some were inflected with skin diseases.

Yep. I've seen them gather en masse for the annual monkey feast around November. Lopburi is Monkey Town. 

I'm glad they are getting vaccinated
