In Gibraltar, a tourist was robbed of his meal by a macaque and could not get it back. A rather hilarious scenario.
When we travel, we want to enjoy the landscapes, the culture of a destination and soak up the atmosphere. But we must not forget to deal with the local population, and we don’t mean only humans! You’ll see in this video, these meetings can be quite funny!
In this video shot at the ocean in Gibraltar, British territory near the Iberian Peninsula, we can see a tourist having his sandwich stolen by a small monkey. The macaque first searches the bag of the traveler then seizes a plastic bag. The tourist tries to somehow get his stuff but the little monkey was too quick, then we feel that the man is slightly intimidated, understandably, it is not uncommon for people to be bitten by monkeys.
A meal in peace
The animal then moved away and then goes on to discover a beautiful sandwich in the bag, which he hurries to enjoy, under the amused gazes of the tourists. As you can see in these pictures, the seagulls are not very far either, they seem to wait to see if they will have a few crumbs of the treat. It is the law of the strongest that prevails here!
Check out the video above to see the thief in action!
