Monkey swipes tourist’s water bottle at Thailand temple

Sept. 27 (UPI) — A man visiting a “monkey temple” in Thailand captured video of the moment a mischievous monkey stole his water bottle.

Erik McDonel was filming video at the Phra Prang Sam Yod temple, known as a “monkey temple” due to its primate population, when he attempted to lure one of the animals with an offered snack.

The macaque ignores the man’s offered bread, instead jumping onto his body and swiping his water bottle.

The man continues to film as the monkey bites a hole in the water bottle and drinks.

A second monkey with better manners approaches the man and gladly takes his offered bread.

“Well, you enjoy my water, monkey,” the man says.
