A British woman was attacked in Thailand by a pack of macaques while on trip to conquer her lifelong fear of primates.She lives in Peterborough, so I'm not really sure why she felt the need to conquer her fear anyway.
Unlike a fear of spiders, she was most unlikely to ever encounter a capuchin in her bath...
Mrs. Darwell said she had had a fear of primates as a result of her father bringing up a chimpanzee which she described as "positively evil."I guess no-one told her that you can see safely caged primates in this country?
But she had joined with a friend a tour run by the Siam Sea Canoe tourist agency to confront her fear.
