The chunky monkey nicknamed "Uncle Fat" by locals is now eating lean protein, fruits and vegetables at a rehabilitation center in Thailand. The morbidly obese wild monkey, who gorged himself on junk food and soda from tourists, has been rescued and placed on a strict diet.
Most urban wild monkeys in Thailand are macaques, and they typically weigh around 9 kilograms (20 pounds).
The typical macaque weighs in at roughly 9kg, but when officials managed to get Uncle Fat onto a scale, they were shocked to see he weighs 26kg.
The primate is now being kept in the department's facility in Bangkok and receiving a strict diet of green vegetables, low-sugar fruits and lean protein.

"He was the leader of his pack, and when I tried to go in, I had to fight off a flock of them with sticks".
"He had minions and other monkeys bringing food for him but he would also re-distribute it to younger monkeys", said Supakarn Kaewchot, a veterinarian in charge of the monkey's diet.
She said Uncle Fat is an example of why people shouldn't feed wild monkeys unhealthy food.

Meanwhile, some are suggesting that Trump could face impeachment over a separate scandal. The author said Trump is in "pure terror" that he could lose and would sooner walk away.
And while most people can easily joke and relate to feeling like a photo of Uncle Fat after one too many cookies, the monkey's obesity poses a real threat to his health. "After he ate food given by humans for a while, he developed a fat mass, which became a type of benign tumor", Supakarn said.
'He is now in a critical condition where there is a high-risk of heart disease and diabetes'.
Veterinarians hope to release him back into the wild after a few months.
