Who'll Take The Lion-Tailed Macaque to France?

This lion-tailed macaque at Fota Wildlife Park sat on his perch for quite some time munching away on an orange.  According to info on the Fota site, there were only 2500 of them left in the wild in 2006, half the number present in 1998.   Wikipedia stomps in with some interesting facts including that it gets its name from the German for Beard Ape.  That could be complete nonsense but it sounds plausible to me.

Of course he’s not actually going to France, for any non-Irish people passing through here there was an ad on Irish tv about taking a horse to France to somehow advertise Kerrygold butter. have a discussion on how annoying that ad was here.
