Medics transported a 4-year-old Russian Boy from Larn Island to a Hospital in Pattaya on Tuesday Morning after he sustained a serious monkey bite to his leg.
The incident occurred at Nuan Beach on Larn Island, which is famous for its monkey population. The young boy was with his family at the time and was feeding the monkeys when a dominant male monkey, thought to be a pack leader, arrived and attempted to steal food from other monkeys.
A fight ensued between the monkeys which involved the 4-year-old boy who was bitten by the male monkey, who we understand has bitten tourists before.
Locals are asking for immediate assistance from Pattaya City Hall so the Monkey can be removed from the Island before another such incident occurs. The boy is currently being treated in Pattaya and may have to receive skin grafts to repair the damage to his right leg.
