By Sandy Sand     Mar 25, 2009 in Lifestyle
From the “What?” files, the owner of a monkey, who was allegedly “forced to climb trees” to harvest coconuts, scampered off the job after taking aim at his master’s “coconut,” killing him instantly.
The Samui Express reported that the monkey, Brother Kwan, was in a tree top in the Thai province of Nakorn Sri Thammarat, when he took aim at Leilit Janchoom, 48.
The report said Janchoom had:
…beaten Brother Kwan whenever he showed any hesitance to climb a tree.
The report also claimed:
… that the monkey found the work boring, strenuous and unrewarding.
The monkey was known to have climbed palms as high as 50 meters. The victim’s wife, Uthai, said:
... they had bought the monkey for about £130. 'It seemed lovable. We called him Brother Kwan.'
