Castration for Macaque Bullying Victims

Posted:

Two macaques escaped from the Straussberg Adventure Park in eastern Germany in July, apparently on the run from the jealous bullying of resident alpha male "Cornelius." When park officials recaptured the two, they reported that (even though everyone seems to be against "bullying" these days) "Fred" and "Richard" would have to be castrated. It wasn't punishment, the officials explained; it was to calm them and reduce the overall "hormone imbalance" in the park, since males greatly outnumber females.
