Obese Monkey Nicknamed ‘Uncle Fatty’ - Video!

THIS greedy monkey is being sent to a fat camp after ballooning to TWICE the normal weight – by gorging on food from tourists.

The 15kg long-tailed macaque – nicknamed “Uncle Fatty”- had been getting fed sugary melons, milkshakes, sweetcorn and noodles, by visitors to a floating water market in Bangkok, Thailand.
He developed an enormous belly before wildlife officials who received reports from concerned locals spotted him this week.

Uncle Fatty has now been rescued and taken for a health check and monkey “fat camp” to try and reduce his weight to a more acceptable 1.2 stone- normal for his species.

 Thai primate conservation group Monkey Lovers said today that Uncle was not sick – he was just fat – and wanted him returned to his friends.
