How many monkey butlers?

NONE! These are Gibbons, which are apes NOT monkeys.

The Gibbon sanctuary is about 40 KMs from Mae Sot and houses Gibbons which have been rescued from captivity and can not be returned to the wild (many of them have amputated limbs).

The sounds they make are incredibly loud. whoop! whoop! whoop! over and over again.

This is Simone, a 2 year old hyper-active Gibbon that was abandoned by her mother.
