Artful dodging monkey

From somewhere on the internet:

"A monkey has been pickpocketing locals in an Indian village and using the money to fund his drink habit.

Trader Sarathi Pradhan, who's seen the thief at work, says: "He springs on the unwary and grabs at their pockets. He particularly likes paper money."

The sly simian, who's thought to have learned the trick from his owner, began his reign of terror last year in Orissa. Since then he has been stealing cash and spending it on booze.

"He comes here almost every day, hands over the money and gets his drink," says Ramesh, the owner of the local liquor shop."
