Hoping the new diet can make him healthy once again. There should be signs posted everywhere that if people feed them then it should be fruit+veggies only. People really should know better anyway not to feed any animal the junk food they eat. thx Lone

Hard to post signs if the monkey is wild.
So glad this poor thing was rescued & is on a proper diet.

TY Lone
