Long-tailed macaque @ Bishan Park feeding on myna

Ewww this is possibly disturbing for those who can't handle gory details..
for those interested you can c the photos at

istDeS from clubsnap spotted this macaque feeding on the remains of a myna at Bishan Park. No details as whether the macaque caught a live prey or that it was dead when the macaque got to it.
Meat is definitely a good source of proteins. But I wonder if it was desperation that drove the macaque to eat carrion(?) hmmmm food for thought..
