After sampling some alcohol from patrons’ glasses, a monkey picked up a knife and chased customers around a bar in Paraiba, Brazil!

The capuchin monkey drank remnants of cachaça, a distilled spirit popular in Brazil, from glasses around the bar. The animal then chased the men in the pub with a foot-long knife but left the women “to drink in relative peace”, according to the Mirror.

A video posted to YouTube on Wednesday shows the monkey stabbing sporadically at the roof of the establishment as people look on.

The monkey was then captured by the local fire department before being released into a nearby environmental reserve.
