Fighting monkey gangs bring traffic to a halt in Lopburi
A fierce battle between three groups of monkeys has brought traffic to a halt at a busy intersection in Lopburi province. The gang war arose between the Phra Prang Sam Yod group, the market group and the government savings bank.
The video clip posted to the “Pong Muang Thong” Facebook page shows hordes of monkeys fighting at the intersection at Lopburi’s Phra Kan Shrine.
The video clip’s creator explained that the battle was between three groups of monkeys from Phra Prang Sam Yod, the Government Savings Bank and the market.
Normally these monkeys fight for food, but not this time. There has been disagreement among the leaders of the three groups for some time, and something seems to have fueled this street battle.
Many monkeys were injured in the battle and calm returned when one of the leaders surrendered and withdrew his troops.
