Six arrested for killing, eating endangered langur monkey
Six men have been arrested in Vietnam for killing and eating an endangered monkey and live-streaming it on social media. The men, aged 35-59, filmed themselves eating a langur monkey in November and streamed the video on Facebook. Vietnamese langur monkeys are one of the world's most endangered primate species, living only in the north. "It took time for us to figure out the suspects involved," police told AFP. In a statement, police added that one of the men bought the monkey from a hunter for 1.1 million dong. Vietnam is currently home to plenty of other endangered species, including the Christmas Island frigatebird and the Siamese crocodile.
