Residents of a village in Thailand that has been overrun by long-tailed macaque monkeys are resorting to desperate measures to protect their homes from the light-fingered creatures.
The monkeys regularly enter homes, stealing property and causing damage - much to the annoyance of villagers.
But conservationists say the increased interference by the monkeys is down to factors such as deforestation and human encroachment into the monkeys' habitat.
