Obese Monkey Is Heading To Fat Camp

Visitors to Bangkok, Thailand will likely come in to contact with monkeys around the city. Once such monkey loves to interact with tourists, mostly because they feed him. That's how the primate ballooned to 33-pounds, more than 10 pounds heavier than the average long-tailed macaque.

The monkey, dubbed Uncle Fatty, has dined on everything from melons to milkshakes and now he's being sent to fat camp. Primate conservation group Monkey Lovers is going to help Uncle slim down. 

"He’s not sick, he just needs helps," the conservation explains. "He likes eating and there are lots of visitors and tourists who give him food all day. We want the monkeys to stay roaming free outside where they are happy."
