Bizarre Photo Of Monkey 'Working' At A University In Taiwan Goes Viral by Macsjebs(m): 1:14am On Feb 06
A photo of a monkey seemingly "working" at a university has gone viral.

The Formosan macaque was snapped sitting at a cubicle at National Sun Yat-Sen University (NSYSU) in the city of Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

It quickly spread over social media and the image of the animal went viral online.

University student and Facebook user Chang Morgan wrote in the original social media post: "We're currently on winter vacation, but look who came to work in NSYSU's Institute of Communications."

The university reportedly sits within the traditional habitat of the species, making them a common sight on campus.

They often appear on site to search for new social groups or mates, according to Lin Mei-yin, secretary-general of the Association for Coexistence with Macaca Cyclopis, an organisation aimed at helping humans and the creatures co-exist in the area.

The institution's senior vice president Huang I-yu said the university had previously installed protective window screens to deal with the intrusion by macaques. It also regularly reminds staff not to leave the doors open.

He said the school also purchased paintball guns and a pack of dogs to scare the monkeys away.

There have been multiple incidents of the animals sneaking into student rooms to steal food and rifle through their belongings, the vice president claims.

The original Facebook post received more than 7,000 likes and was shared more then 4,600 times.

Kaohsiung's Agriculture Bureau reminded members of the public to be cautious around the monkeys and to avoid feeding and bothering them along with any kind of contact.

The Formosan macaque is the only native species of primate currently living in Taiwan.

The day it's animal sense will direct it to tear some important documents in that office, they'll know that an animal can never fit into the human cycle 100%.

Research?
It wasn't working but the pic made it look like it was. And from the article, it is common for monkeys to come around since the school ia close to their habitat.
Also, it was reported that the school made efforts to discourage the monkeys from coming with paint guns and dogs.

I see many other folks too making it like this is an intelligent monkey working in an office. The content of the post has nothing to do with that.

It's not PLANET OF APES grin grin

the world has move past Nigerian reasoning.

The problem you're discussing here was discussed by their forefathers in 1927....and they have solved it with extensive intelligence animal training

stop this African white-worshiping mentality
there is no way you train an animal that it would lose its animal instincts

Except you modify it genetically

That Africa seems backward doesn't mean we don't have intelligent intellectuals

Bross you no read the full article o. They did not employ the monkey in that office, it comes in to find food and other edibles, they are even trying to keep them away from the institution.

The monkeys are infact Intruders in the facility, camera just catch that one sitting in the office like it's working there. The headline was just sensational and sacarstic, but if you read the article you will know what the real gist is about. The institution even bought paint guns to keep the monkeys away, but you know primates they will always come back.

Make we dey try read the article before commenting
