Joy and sorrow of monkey trainers

Yang Lingui gazes at the landscape outside a freight train with his monkeys beside him. Yang Lingui is a monkey trainer in Xinye county, Central China's Henan province. In Yang's village, almost every household trains these animals and teaches them to perform tricks for money. "We earn much more doing this than farming, which is why almost every household is in this profession," Yang said. This makes their village financially better off than neighboring villages.
