More Illegal Baby Monkeys

Yet again, a baby macaque is being kept illegally at the white sand dunes north of Mui Ne, by one of the drink sellers.

Macaques were once common all along the coast of Vietnam, but now locally extinct almost everywhere but the mountain forests (and there quickly disappearing as well).
