The morbidly obese wild monkey, who gorged himself on junk food and soda from tourists, has been rescued and placed on a strict diet. Now in the care of an animal sanctuary, he's been put on a strict diet of lean protein, fruit and vegetables.
The subordinate monkeys fed into Uncle Fat's bad habits.
Wildlife officials said Friday that veterinarians determined the monkey, known to locals as "Uncle Fatty" or "Uncle Fat", was morbidly obese due to being given junk food and soft drinks by local residents.
Veterinarians hope to release him back into the wild after a few months.
Uncle Fat is believed to be between 10 and 15 years old.

When captured, Uncle Fat weighed in at roughly 60 pounds, or three times the size of most healthy Macaques, who typically only weigh around 20 pounds.
"I understand that people feel sorry for the monkeys and want to feed them when they see them", Supakarn said.
'But please don't feed them food that people like to eat like snacks and soda.
