Cheeky monkey tries stealing sweets from woman’s back pocket


This is the amusing moment a wild monkey crept up on a girl to try and steal a packet of sweets from her back pocket.

The tourist was crouching down to take a picture in a car park while the animal sidled over to her in Chanthaburi, eastern Thailand, on May 1.

It then made a beeline for her backside and extended a hand towards her bottom to attempt to steal her food. However, the woman felt the unwelcome approach and jumped up in fright.

Onlooker Rattiyakorn said: ‘The monkey was a bit creepy. There were many monkeys there trying to steal food.’
