this is my writing on the Jakartapost Workshop and we asked to write opinion writing, and here it is :

Many visitors of Pangandaran beach getting scared when monkeys try to steal their belonging. One of the visitors who bring plastic bag shocked when five long tailed monkeys approached her and snatch the bag. Long tailed monkey (Macaca fascicularis) is a common monkey lived in many place in tropical areas in Indonesia like Pangandaran beach. They was originally a shy creature like others primate. They eat like any normal primates, like nuts, fruits, and even bugs.
But if they were shy, why these animals steal from human? The truth is human itself is the main problem. Many people loves animal because sometimes they are cute, they rarely seen on the city, and people just love giving food to it. That is how these animals become inhabituated with human and start to react with people who bring plastic bag as they get used to given food by the ‘plastic man’.
Monkey has bigger brain volume compared to other animal. This is why they can easily learn things and trained by human. Untrained monkey is also a good learner. They used to get food by human and when they do not get it, they just ask for it or in their case take it.
This is what happens when you don’t obey the rules in the zoo and the conservation areas. People often to blame on the site manager and sue them for their own fault. Being generous is good but not for this case. Sometimes getting animal spoiled is good but pick the right animal. So why bother giving them food when they can get their own? Sometimes things are meant to be how it supposed to be.
