Rights vs. expectations

One of my most interesting experiences this week was staying over at a resort with young Jewish Torah students and there were monkeys who came to visit.

Unbeknown to them – coming from America – they were able to peel oranges and feed slices to the monkeys who literally took them out of their hands.

However a friend of mine told me that this is a big no-no in Africa for then the monkeys become aggressive

“Why?” query I, the American.

“Because then the monkeys begin to expect food from humans and when they don’t get it they become aggressive.”

Now doesn’t that leave us with much to learn from.
