Drunk monkey threatens everyone in bar with kitchen knife

A monkey in Patos, Brazil got drunk, grabbed a kitchen knife, and threatened a bunch of people in a bar in early February.

Apparently the monkey found a spare glass of rum, downed it, then grabbed a knife from the kitchen and chased away all of the men in the bar. He reportedly ignored the women. He then climbed up on the roof and started stabbing it.

Someone was able to catch the troubled monkey on video.

The fire department was called, and managed to disarm and capture the monkey.

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

After they released him, he ended up attacking people again, and was recaptured, and will likely remain in captivity.

As for what angered the monkey, it’s hard to say. Perhaps he’s related to Furious George?
