Monkeying around

Monkeys in the news. A taxi was apprehended yesterday in Kompong Thom province with more than 60 monkeys on the backseat. Despite that the driver had official papers for the transport , police are researching if the monkeys are being illegally smuggled. The main question would be if in the new traffic law, the taxi was overloaded or not?
What is it with monkeys, Cambodia and traffic? There's the case of a parliamentarian who sent his Orangutan to the vet on the back of the moto supposedly with somebody to provide directions to the moto driver.
Then there's a Chinese road construction company which besides building Cambodia's highways is finding catching monkeys more lucrative.
