Tilly, The Female Bonnet Mazaque MonkeyTilly

Type : Bonnet Macaque
Sex : Female
Age : Approx. 4 Years old on arrival
Date of Arrival : 7th September 2011

Tilly was a young female of about 2 years, found wandering in calangute still dragging her long rope lead, and bought to us by the forestry dept. She was obviously being illegally kept, probably for begging from tourists, as this is the main tourist area.

She is of a friendly nature and gets on well with the other monkeys. She loves to swim and our volunteers take her in the pool regularly. Unusually she hates all cats and would injure them if she could, so they have to be kept out of her reach.
