Son keeps Monkey Man's spirit alive

Love bug strikes Kam Ying

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 son of Chan 'Monkey Man' Yat-biu has appealed for help from experts to look into the apparent illness of the primate that his late father raised.
