Drunken Monkey Threatens Locals With Knife

( 4UMF NEWS ) Drunken Monkey Threatens Locals With Knife:

He went bananas. A drunken monkey threatened locals at a bar in Brazil after sampling a potent rum drink.

The boozy capuchin monkey had to be disarmed after threatening to stab customers in Teixeira, Paraiba.

“It was a bar staff oversight that ended with the monkey drinking some rum and taking the knife,” said local fire department lieutenant Saul Laurentino.

Footage captured the monkey menacingly stalking the roof top of the bar carrying the giant weapon and stabbing at tiles.

Firefighters were called to the scene to recapture the aggressive animal, according to Breaking 911.

Staff from the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources are assessing whether the monkey can be released, or if it will have to live in captivity after it reportedly threatened children who live nearby.
