Monkey downs bottle of beer in India

A monkey was filmed this week consuming alcohol from a bottle in Sikkim, India.

In the video, which was filmed on November 29, the primate can be seen holding the bottle of booze and downing the beverage.

According to local media, wild animals in the area often scavenge food and drink discarded by tourists.

Locals have complained to the authorities to take stricter measures against tourists who leave behind such items.
