Rebel Monkeys: The Monkey Catcher

Rebel Monkeys: The Monkey Catcher
The monsoon rains are running late, creating shortages of food and water. The temple's natural spring becomes a tempting target for other monkey troops, so the Galta gang must guard it. Hunger finally forces them to send a small band to raid on a cart of dried food, but the owner calls for the monkey catcher. A handful of the Galta gang are captured, further diminishing their strength even as they must now defend their temple home against an invasion of larger langur monkeys.
