Monkey On Motorcycle Steals Baby

People are shocked over a video showing a monkey riding a tiny motor scooter trying to kidnap a toddler in Indonesia, grabbing the girl by her dress and dragging her along an alley. The incident unfolded Saturday in the East Java city of Surabaya and involved a traditional form of street entertainment known as topeng monyet, or masked monkey. The primate, accompanied by percussion music, is seen riding the tiny vehicle down a narrow residential street before stopping by a wooden bench where a woman is sitting with a baby and two young children. The monkey hops off the bike and pulls the diapered girl in a yellow dress — dragging her several feet as onlookers yell at the handler. When the monkey ends its attack, the girl gets up and runs back to her mother. She suffered abrasions to her forehead. The person who shot the footage said it all happened just as people gathered to watch the performance.
