There's nothing wrong with pet monkey Kam Ying that a healthy male monkey couldn't fix. A veterinarian from the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department examined the primate of the late 'Monkey Man' Chan Yat-biu yesterday and gave her a clean bill of health. Fears had been expressed after her owner Chan Yiu-wing, 54, reported that she had gone off her food and was bad-tempered. The inspection was carried out in Kowloon City where the 10-year-old rhesus monkey lives with Mr Chan, the son of Chan Yat-biu. Mr Chan believes Kam Ying, who gained fame after his father won a legal battle to keep her, needs a mate.
