We had been staying here for a week when ginger, the female monkey started her mating season. She took a liking to Jessie and started doing this strange thing where she would turn her back to him, stick out her bum, turn her head and put out her tongue, like she was trying to lure him in. One night she saw us going to our bedroom together and she became very jealous and aggresive towards me. In the day time when we were out of our room she broke in. When we walked into our room she was sitting in our bed smiling, with poo and wee all around her. She had even pooed in Jessie’s bag.
There is a wild pig here who is a little temperamental. We have to stay in a room which is attached to the big pen, that’s where our beds are. You have to walk through it to get into the main pen for feeding, it’s the only way in there. Once we were sleeping in bed and we woke up to hear a bang, as the door flew open and the wild pig burst in. I got up, and thinking the pig had gone back out again, closed and locked the door and got back into bed. I was just falling asleep when I felt a wet snout snaffling at my feet. A woke up with a start and jumped out of bed. I had to chase the pig round the room a few times before I managed to get it out.
