If you are one of the individuals that travel abroad and goes to foreign countries here’s a good piece of advice for you. Don’t flip off a monkey!Monkeys are cute and adorable to some people for whatever reason and others view them as disgusting vermin. Monkeys have feelings as well as intuition. Should you give a monkey the bird don’t be surprised if you end up getting drop kicked in the face like that one tourist in 2014 who did (video below for your pleasure). Apparently monkeys can cause problems with tourists and in India, they are known to attack people. Especially monkeys in one area called Shimla.
If you go to the website for Shimla India there is a quote on it that says “The monkeys of Shimla are not pleasant animals, they roam around in gangs looking for the opportunity to rob tourists of their food or any other item that catches their eyes,” When you visit this area of the website it goes as far as to suggest for you to rent a stick so that you can beat the monkeys away! So when you like to travel abroad make sure that you looked into the region you are going and make your reservations for your monkey stick should you be in an area with dangerous monkeys. Remember Planet of the Apes!
