Watch: This Is Why You Should Never Flip Off Monkeys (Or Pandas)

A young man was recently drop-kicked to the ground by a monkey in Shimla, India.

Monkeys are known to run wild in this part of India, but are not always appreciated.

The BBC reported in 2014 that there are about 300,000 monkeys in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh (Shimla is the capital), and the creatures have been known to attack people and steal food.

According to, the young man gave the monkey the finger, but the simian didn't take kindly to the hand gesture, and sprung off a city bench to drop-kick the guy to the ground (video below). 

The monkey hopped back into position on the bench, while the dazed young man walked off, not realizing he left his jacket on the pavement.

Fortunately, his friend retrieved it for him.
