Monkeys in Creepy Masks

For Halloween, I thought it would be appropriate to post this photo series I saw recently.

In southeast Asia, monkeys are used as street performers & often have strange costumes or unsettling doll masks, like the ones in these pictures.

Street-Performing Macaques

They are are like little creatures out of a strange, horrifying nightmare!

Thankfully, it seems like some action is taken to prevent the abuse of these animals.
