Brazen the menace

Walking in the garden this morning, I discovered that Brazen had already paid a visit to the garden before I got there.
I have had to replace several of my landscaping plants because of his manic behaviour.  He swings and lands on the tender shrub branches and break them off....they never have a chance of survival this way.
This time was no different.  He had been playing in my Japanese fern tree and had broken off a sizeable branch.
I have several species of orchids attached to this tree, but they were unharmed, thank goodness!!



Look what that brazen monkey has done to Mum's tree


  Brownie was none too pleased.

I'm going to get him one of these days

Maybe it's time for the trapper to put in an appearance.
I've had it "up to here" with this freaking monkey!

  1. I think I'd be taking the law into my own hands - not that I'm sure how. To discourage animals on walls and fences here I believe there is a sort of non-drying mastic you can spread which they really hate.

  2. Thanks GB for that suggestion. I think I will look into that non-drying mastic. Although they do have very keen noses/senses, so it probably won't go unnoticed....they're very smart creatures.

  3. I'd call the trapper or a zoo. Your monkey is a pain in the butt! Or grow plants with thorns!

  4. I won't feel safe with thorny plants around because of Brownie. He may be chasing after a lizard or other critter and run smack into those thorns..Ouch!!
    The trapper is on call.

  5. I have no suggestions - monkeys in the garden are not a problem I've come across in England! Though I have a strong suspicion that once a certain kitten is let loose in the garden there will be devastation. And we've inflicted it on ourselves, oh dear.

    1. I wouldn't risk sweet Ivy in the garden with Brazen around. I've heard stories of monkeys taking puppies and climbing trees and throwing them to their deaths.

  6. I think Mr Brazen is overdue for a long holiday - somewhere far far away.

    1. Long ago, some of his troop was caught in traps placed by the Barbados Wildlife Reserve.
      When they realised that they were being caught in the cages with food, we could not catch any more. In those days they were taken to live at the reserve with meals and a good life. The reserve is in the north of the island, so that was far enough away for me.
