I received the following email today from a reader named Carol in response to a post I did a while back on the “Rock Apes” of Vietnam. Carol writes:
“My husband was a Marine in Vietnam in the late 60s. He told me about the rock apes – they would throw rocks at the apes, and the apes would throw them back. Sometimes they would make the game a little more dangerous and throw grenades at the apes. They were possibly some type of macaque, he didn’t know. But they really do exist.”
First of all, thank you , Carol, for taking the time to email me about this. I would like to say again that I would really like to hear from anyone who has had an experience with these animals.
Coincidentally, the SyFy Channel is airing the season premier of Destination Truth tomorrow night (check local listings for time). The focus of the episode will be on the search for the Vietnam bigfoot. Check out a trailer for the episode here.
Looks pretty intense.
