The Air Force of the People's Liberation Army of China has trained a group of macaques to help protect an air base close to Beijing.

These monkeys have been put here to take care of the huge flocks of birds that pose a threat to flights.

According to China's Air Force News website, the macaques have been taught to destroy nests in nearby trees and chase away the birds that have become a nuisance during the take-offs and landings of fighter planes in the base whose exact location was not revealed.
