In Brazil, a monkey armed himself with a machete and scared the locals for almost a week. The Metro newspaper reports this.
The incident occurred near a large national park in the municipality of Correnti, in the state of Piaui. The man filmed the monkey on the video — the footage shows how the primate sharpens the blade on the brick wall. The animal also brandished a machete as if threatening residents passing by.
“Those who suffer from her actions are worried, as they cannot leave doors and windows open. Others find it amusing. The monkey has become a meme", — said a local resident.
Citizens contacted the Brazilian Institute for the Protection of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources. They were assured they would look into the matter.
