JAKARTA (AFP) – A district in central Indonesia has invited the army, police and local hunters to help battle bands of wild monkeys which are raiding plantations and attacking villagers, the district head said. Dozens of men armed with rifles are now patrolling villages in Java’s Boyolali district searching for wild long-tailed macaques. “With the invasion of hundreds of these monkeys, we allow shooting clubs to help overcome this problem,” Boyolali chief Seno Samodro said.
