Planet Of The Apes Is Real
<snip>

BAMBOO farmers in east China's Anhui province are mobilizing against armies of rhesus monkeys, who attack their fields in a veritable "war of the species," state media said.

The conflict has broken out in Jing county, where rural families living on some of China's most suitable soil for bamboo have seen unusually fierce assaults from roving bands of monkeys this spring, Xinhua news agency said.

The problem for the farmers is that they cannot kill the monkeys, as the Government has launched a campaign to protect the rhesus species, now considered "nearly endangered" after decades of hunting.
