Longleat Jungle Monkeys Dismantle Mercedes – Video

Nearly 100 Macaque monkeys descend upon a Mercedes estate wagon and begin to dismantle and tear up as much of the vehicle as they are able. The Macaques are residents of Monkey Jungle in the Longleat Wildlife Park, Wiltshire County, in Southwest England.

Monkey Jungle has been closed to the public recently while the primates’ enclosure was redeveloped. The staff placed the Mercedes into the enclosure ahead of the grand re-opening this very weekend with a purpose of getting the monkey’s used to being around cars once again.

From the results of the experiment, it seems that the Macaques still have a long way to go before their behavior approaches anything resembling proper manners.

The simian imps rapidly removed wheel covers, rearview mirrors and comcletely tore apart any luggage they could get their hands on.

Have a look:

It seems that any park visitors may be in for some serious macaque trouble once the Monkey Enclosure re-opens, judging by the likes of this experiment.

Longleat safari park opened in 1966 and claims status as the first such attraction outside Africa.
