In Taidong County, in between Donghe and Taiyuan (I think it's called), there are lots of monkeys that hang out by a bridge. A whole cottage industry of people selling fruit to tourists has sprung up and huge numbers of people can be seen feeding the monkeys on the weekend. This is all going to be fun and games until someone acts like an idiot and gets bitten by a monkey. Then there's going to be a big stink and the government will send someone in to kill a whole bunch of them. The remainder will also have trouble readapting (or adapting, if they're young) to life trying to find food for themselves.

People are fucking arseclowns with animals here. They'll freak out at the sight of a golden retriever because it's supposedly so big and scary, yet they'll fuck around with wild animals with big teeth, sharp reflexes and edgy temperaments.

This thread is misleading...thought there was another trial verdict against an Engrishy teacher.

Truer words have rarely been spoken.

Today my wife made some of her fellow teachers mad (the native Taiwanese ones). She walked into a conversation about how horribly stupid and cruel Taiwanese are about/to animals (for the most part it is one or the other...but of course there are people who are awesome about animals...but they are the minority).

The discussion was started by another white teacher who had witnessed a man pouring HOT SOUP onto a dog today on his way to work. The Tawanese teachers were saying "Oh this so rare, never happen, Taiwan people so good to animal" then my wife was like "WTF are you talking about???? Just last week I saw a man throw a dog against a wall and then start to beat it with his fists".

For the rest of the conversation, the two Taiwanese were dead silent and just sorta "pouted" I guess because she made their entire culture lose face or something.

I went to Gushan in early April to witness those monkeys terrorizing visitors, but whenever I asked someone where I could see those monkeys, I was told to go into the zoo :eh: which wasn't possible as I had my dog with me and they don't allow pets in the zoo.

But if they lock up all the monkeys, who will be left to run the city council?

Now you're just being silly. Monkeys aren't interested in red envelopes.
