This is dangerous, and I prefer the Zoo. Wild animals are dangerous!

On camera, a father from Australia scoops up his son in a panic as armed monkeys assault them on a beach in Thailand.

Riley Whitelum and Elayna Carausu, who have 1.8 million YouTube subscribers thanks to their travel-related videos, were on Ko Phi Phi Don island’s Monkey Beach with their two young sons.

Why? These are wild animals. A zoo is much better.

One of the monkeys started looking inside their luggage as Whitelum and his sons, Lenny, 5, and Darwin, 1, watched some monkeys on the beach.

Whitelum returned to rescue their belongings without his kids while fending off the monkeys.

He wound up bleeding on his hand after being wounded by a monkey’s tooth, putting him at risk of getting rabies. This fatal virus is communicated to humans by the saliva of rabid animals.

When she heard screaming coming from the shore, Carausu was out snorkeling at the time.

Whitelum chastised the crowd for standing by and doing nothing to assist.

It was astounding, he declared.

The family traveled into town to seek medical assistance, where the clinic’s personnel informed them that they see one to two patients…
