Thieving monkeys driving people bananas

GUIYANG, China (NBC/ CCTV VIA EBU) — Monkeys in one Southwest Chinese city have been terrorizing pedestrians by stealing food.

Amateur video provided by China Central Television showed one monkey walking up to a person and stealing a carton of milk on Friday. The monkey then climbed a telephone pole near where another monkey was hanging out.

CCTV said local wildlife authorities were trying to catch the monkeys and release them into the wild.

Meanwhile, people have been warned not to feed the monkeys or play with them. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
