Alcoholic Monkeys Stealing Cocktails from Caribbean Beach-Goers

In 2009, the BBC television show Weird Nature went to the West Indies island named St. Kitts to film vervet monkeys snatching cocktails from beach-goers and then proceeding to get drunk. According to the clip, the monkeys were brought from West Africa 300 years ago with the rum-making slaves and they acquired a taste for alcohol from eating the rum’s leftover fermented sugar cane. The footage was produced and directed by award-winning media company, John Downer Productions.
