A ZOO in the freezing steppes of Kazakhstan is giving its monkeys red wine to ward off winter colds.
“After all, primates are just like people. They enjoy drinking an alcoholic drink, they like it. Some of them even abuse it, coming up to the drinking trough several times,” she said.
Pregnant monkeys and babies are not allowed to have the drink.
The zoo feeds the monkeys a kind of red communion wine, making it more appetising for monkeys by adding chopped fruit, honey, lemon, sugar and hot water.
The outside temperature in Karagandy today was minus 33C, but the monkeys had a far warmer temperature of 27C in their enclosure, Pilyuk said.
The vast Central Asian state of Kazakhstan is not a wine-producing country. Its national drink is kumys, or fermented horse milk.
