Taiwan Macacus Monkey Population Hits 250,000Macacus monkeys living in China' s island province of Taiwan have hit 250,000, Taiwan's local media reported on Wednesday.
The media said that local agriculture officials have delivered a report to conservation experts saying that Macacus monkeys inhabit Taiwan's broad-leaved forests at altitudes of between 500 and 1,500 meters.
The officials said Macacus monkeys usually stick together during the day, and the largest observed group had 75 of the animals.
Because of their status as a rare species, citizens in Taiwan who hurt the monkeys face prison terms of between six months and five years as well as a fine ranging from 200,000 new Taiwan dollars (US$6,000) to 1 million new Taiwan dollars (US$30, 000).
