Two rival monkey gangs clashed on a street in Thailand’s Lopburi in a fight over the food near a traffic junction.

The video of the incident went viral on social media. Hundreds of monkeys on the street brought the traffic to a halt as people on motorbikes and cars waited to get a clear way out of there while being frightened.

The man who recorded the fight, Pong Muangthong, said motorists also tried honking their horns to scatter the monkeys but that only made them angrier.


As a result of this incident, several monkeys were injured. There was blood on the road.

“Monkey battles in Lopburi occur frequently. It’s not strange. It’s about the power struggle, the food fight, the fertilization of the females,” a spokesperson for the Department of National Parks told Matichon.

According to Daily Mail, Covid-19 might be the reason behind the gang war.
