These monkeys were beautiful to watch but they fed on the crops around the forest because they fed on farmer’s crops. The farmers wanted to kill them but the monkeys were very smart and always on their guard. They would spot a man from afar and move quickly away from danger; and they did this successfully several times. They would pluck the farmer’s ripe banana and ripe cocoa pods and feed on them until they were satisfied. Several bunches of bananas and pods of cocoa were lost in a single visit by the monkeys. Although they did not take away the crops, they competed with the farmers in harvesting them. They usually left the farmers sad and angry after such visits. All the farmers had to become hunters as a result of this. They all owned guns, went to the farms with the guns and put them at their reach always.
