SIEM REAP, Cambodia, Aug. 10 (UPI) — A tour guide in Cambodia shared video of a tourist’s encounter with a clever monkey that ended up stealing a pair of water bottles.
The video, posted to YouTube by Sary’s Siem Reap Tours, shows the tour guide pull his vehicle over so his passengers can get a closer look at a monkey “hitchhiker” at the side of the road.
The monkey fearlessly approaches the vehicle and climbs on the front, grabbing a pair of water bottles from the driver’s basket.
“Just one!” the driver says, but the monkey does not heed his words.
The thirsty simian then takes a seat to enjoy his ill-gotten beverages.
The monkey makes quick work of both water bottles before the tour guide drives away.
“My customers wanted to meet some of the famous monkeys of Siem Reap. We met up with a thirsty friend,” the tour guide wrote.
