No, while there could be parallels drawn we're not talking about Seattle or Portland, but Lobpuri Thailand, where amidst the covid lock-down the population have had to barricade themselves at home as thousands of monkeys take over the streets, monkeys who's aggressiveness making it extremely difficult for the humans of the town to move about in public.
"The randy primates have set up a HQ in a disused cinema, lashing out at anyone brave enough to try and drive them away. Unfortunately some residents first thought the best way of calming the overzealous monkeys down was to give them fast food – but this has just made the situation worse. Their new sugary diet and the lack of tourists because of the Covid-19 crisis has conspired to make life miserable for the people of Lopburi.
The macaques are laying their dead to rest in a projection room as locals struggle to come up with a plan to reclaim the streets. Many have been forced to barricade themselves at home as the monkeys take over....."I think it’s fairly clever of the monkeys to set up their own pseudo-city hall in an abandoned movie theater. It shows they have more sense of the need for civil order than the anarchists and their street allied skateboarders & gay boy gamer live stream journalist and homeless junkies of the late CHAD, or CHOP, or whatever Seattle was calling it in it's last days. And the monkeys wouldn't even dream of setting a Wendy’s on fire. There’s too much food in there.
And like some 'protesters', shameless monkeys crap and have sex wherever they want, and don’t care. But Hey. It’s their city. They can do what they want. At least the monkeys don’t have the nerve to run the police off and then try to call 911 when they have a problem.
The monkeys in Lobpuri seem to have a more cohesive sense of community than we do here in America. Maybe it’s because they’re focused on only a few things, like screwing, eating and chasing cats whereas we spend an awful lot of our time arguing with each other about things that don’t even matter all that much.
