Recently, several monkeys were caught on video climbing out of the window of a flat on the 5th floor of a HDB flat in Singapore.



The video which was shared to the Facebook group Singapore Road Accident on July 16 begins with a monkey already on the ground and three more making their way down.

The monkeys proceed to slide down the wall whilst one of them decides to descend via the ledges and bamboo pole holders.

Meanwhile, a second monkey is then seen jumping onto the ledge on the 4th floor.



The 2 monkeys on the pole holders resumed their descent once almost all the others have reached the ground was seen taking a pause just below the bamboo pole holder.

Eventually, they were all able to make their way down to the ground.


Isn’t it dangerous?

The video has amassed plenty of attention as netizens shared their thoughts on the matter with some making jokes about the incident.

Another user said that the reason why there were around residencies was only because they have lost their own home. “That’s the reason why there are too many monkeys and wild boars roaming around,” said the user.

Monkey guarding to be carried out

Following the viral video, Singapore’s National Parks Board (NParks) have said that monkey guarding will be carried out to guide the troop of macaques towards forested areas.

Speaking to CNA, NParks’ group director of wildlife management Dr Adrian Loo said that monkey guarding refers to blocking the monkeys from approaching and herding them towards forested areas.



“We are also conducting visits in the area to monitor the troop’s movement and advise residents on how to respond during macaque encounters,” said Dr Loo.

“CCTVs have been installed in the areas to help enforce against high-rise feeding of the macaques which contribute to them venturing into urban areas in search for food.”
