Primate Restaurant in Japan

I hate to see animals anywhere but in the wild so this monkey restaurant really touched a nerve with me.

A restaurant in Japan has some unusual waiting staff on its books. There are two macaque monkeys, Yatchan and Fukuchan, who serve customers and are given soya beans as tips.

The younger of the two, Fuku-chan, usually begins the first shift and is quick to hand hot towels to customers to clean their hands before ordering drinks.

Four year old Fuku-chan has only two years experience under his furry belt and his work load is limited to hot towels. Yatchan actually serves drinks too.
