Monkey Steals Money – level 3
An employee of a jewellery shop in India gave a piece of fruit to a seemingly friendly monkey sitting outside the shop door. However, shortly after, the primate pushed open the door and made itself at home.
It took a seat in an office chair, then suddenly opened a drawer and took out a bundle of notes. Seeing the robbery unfold, the desperate employee tried to offer the monkey a banana in exchange for the money, but the thief obviously had its sights set high and rejected the offer. It escaped into the street with about 10,000 rupees, which is about 150 US dollars.
Shop staff said that they had spotted the monkey hanging around before, and no doubt they will be more careful if it comes back again. The security camera of the animal robbery became viral.
Difficult words: primate (a scientific word for ‘monkey'), bundle (a group of things), unfold (happen), desperate (stressed, shocked), reject (turn down, say ‘no'), viral (very popular on the Internet).
