Two rare grey-shanked douc langurs have been found seeking food at a resort
in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue.

Staff at a resort in Loc Vinh Commune, Phu Loc District have recently found the two wild animals hanging on some trees in the garden.

According to the staff, the two langurs were very bold and not scared of humans. They even went into the kitchen to take fruit and food and sat at the table to eat in front of them.

After being informed of the incident, Head of Phu Loc Forest Ranger Department, Le Van Tuong, said that the two grey-shanked douc langurs might have come from Bac Hai Van Protective Forest.

"We are planning to relocate them to Bach Ma National Forest to raise a new colony," Tuong said.
A representative at the Bach Ma National Forest said that the langurs which have scientific names as Pygathrix nemaeus, are listed in Vietnam's red book as rare animals.
