Video Shows Monkey On Bike Try To 'Kidnap' Little Girl

Video Shows Monkey On Bike Try To 'Kidnap' Little Girl

Shocking footage shows the moment a monkey tried to 'kidnap' a little girl after jumping off a bike it was riding and pulling her away down an alley.

Witnesses could be heard screaming as they saw the monkey grab the little girl's dress and drag her part way down the narrow street.

Filmed from above, the monkey abandons its bike, which looks like a mini motorcycle, before pulling her along and eventually giving up and running away.

Thought to have been filmed in Tanjungsari Village, Indonesia, it approached a bench where a woman and three young girls were sitting, before taking one of the children away.

Thankfully, another man ran into the shot and scared the monkey off and the toddler ran crying back to her mother.

Although it might seem funny at first glance - if anything, because it's such a strange situation - social media users think they have found a more sinister reason for the incident.

When it was shared on Reddit, one person wrote that they noticed a cord around the monkey's neck, and added that they think it was being trained - which is the reason it was being filmed in the first place.

They wrote: "OK so what really happens is those monkeys get put on a toy bike (that doesn't have an engine) and a collar with a rope on it.

"The owner then yanks the cord so the monkey flies from one end of the street to the other while steering.

"Pretty cruel and that's probably why the monkey is so strung out. You can see the owner trying to pull back on the cord and he pulls the monkey while it hangs on to the kid, and in the start yanking the cord to propel the bike."

Another use wrote: "Wow, I just rewatched it, and, yes, I absolutely saw the cord. Gross! So that sort of explains why the other guy was filming... he was the 'training' session. That's so sad."

Another person concluded: "The monkey isn't trying to pull the kid with it, it's just trying to grab onto something so it doesn't get pulled away."

A definitive explanation for the video is yet to be decided, but people on social media are calling for the incident to be investigated further.
