Monkey steals and drops banknotes in India

A mischevious monkey turned out to be an unwitting Robin Hood in India's Shimla region at the weekend.
Holidaymakers who had been visiting the scenic pine forests of the state capital got more than they bargained for when a monkey turned up and started to drop bank notes all over the ground.

The thieving primate had allegedly entered a nearby property looking for something to eat and had instead grabbed a large handful of the homeowner's hard-earned cash before sitting on a tin roof and dropping the notes one at a time.

Visitors to the area couldn't believe their luck as they ran around for the better part of an hour trying to catch the falling currency. It is believed that the haul totalled around 10,000 rupees. ( $165 )

The bizarre incident marks the second time this has happened in the last twelve months with another monkey credited with stealing a wad of cash back in February before dumping it on to the street.
