Monkey business as horde of simians swarm photographer in Thailand

A photographer visiting Lopburi in Thailand was mobbed by a pack of wild monkeys on July 14.

Footage shows the overwhelmed man struggling to move as six monkeys climb on his shoulders and back.

The cheeky apes can be seen later playing with a camera tripod and eventually knocking it over.

''Lopburi is known as the monkey capital of Thailand, the monkeys run will here, however they are very naughty. Two people lost their reading glasses while I was visiting there today, and the monkeys ran away with them. I almost lost mine too,'' the photographer said.
