While people tend to do crazy stuff while being drunk, it now seems animals too are following  in their footsteps. A monkey in Brazil started chasing people with a knife in his hand at a bar after getting ‘drunk’.

According to local media, fire fighters were called in Patos, Paraiba province of Brazil earlier this month after a monkey walked into a bar and downed a glass of rum. The monkey was somehow able to get hold of a kitchen knife and started waving it at the men in a bar and chasing them.

Interestingly, the animal left the women alone.

“It was a bar staff oversight that ended with the monkey drinking some rum and taking the knife,” fire department chief Saul Laurentino told the aRede website.

A video uploaded on YouTube shows the monkey scratching the bar’s roof with the large kitchen knife before jumping down to continue its violent rampage.

Eventually fire fighters were able to catch the monkey and confiscated the knife. The monkey was released into the wild only to be caught again acting aggressively towards people.

Authorities are reportedly trying to decide whether to release it or take into permanent captivity.
