FARMER IAN WEBSTER is having a problem with monkeys.

They are costing him thousands of dollars in produce whenever they invade his field and they leave him scratching his head as he tries to figure out a way to permanently keep them at bay.

“You can’t catch the monkeys and when you catch them, people . . . say you wicked, you killing them, but they destroying your crops,” he said. Many other farmers were having the same problem, he said.

Webster took the DAILY NATION on tour of his field at Bibby’s Lane, St Michael, to show the damage wrought by the primate pests, days after Minister of the Environment Dr Denis Lowe called for an end to the $25 bounty per tail on monkeys.
