Don’t feed the bears and never mess with the monkeys.
This CCTV footage shows a tourist sticking his middle finger up at a monkey but he didn’t get the reaction he was after.
The monkey, of northern India’s Shimla region, climbed onto a railing and leapt towards the young man’s face leaving him sprawled out on the ground.
The tourist is seen walking away from the incident unharmed, but it took a few moments to get himself back to his feet and he was obviously suffering from shock.
What some may see as a hilarious reaction from the monkey, those familiar with the Shimla region will know otherwise. The monkeys of that area are known to have fierce reputations, with reports of attacks and bites are common.
