Chinese University academics are under siege, victims of a band of intelligent robbers who lurk in the woods near a main road on the campus. According to an SAR source, a group of thieving macaques have recently moved into the leafy Sha Tin campus and are mugging students and professors making their way back to the hostel after shopping for supper at ParknShop. 'They must realise that bags with the ParknShop logo usually have food in them,' the source said. 'If it's a plain plastic bag, they don't bother.' Apparently the college monkeys are quicker on the uptake than their human counterparts.
