The centre was informed of a monkey living on Petchaburi Mountain. It became apparent that according to Petchaburi officials, the monkey had lived with a piece of wire around it’s neck for a year.
Unfortunately, as this had not been reported and resolved earlier, the metal wire had begun to grow into the monkey’s skin, this obviously had serious medical implications for the monkey. Once the centre was made aware of the situation, a two day search ensued.
Once the monkey had been found, the damage that had been caused by the wire was clear. The monkey was taken back to the centre where the wire was removed successfully, which was obviously a great relief to the centre and the monkey, who had lived in discomfort and pain for at least a year.
Ten days of treatment followed which resulted in a successful release.
