Hungry mother monkey climbs on pickup truck to look for food in Thailand

A mother monkey climbed onto a pickup truck to look for food in Thailand.

Footage shows the primate carrying its baby while rummaging through a laundry basket to search for snacks in Khao Yai national park, Nakhon Nayok province on December 24. It took a plastic bag full of medicine before running off to the forest nearby.

Car owner Siriporn Thapong said: ‘It was a beautiful experience. It’s not every day that a monkey would jump on your car to find food.’

Authorities have previously warned tourists to be vigilant of rogue monkeys in the park that may steal their food and other belongings.
