Feb. 15 (UPI) -- A visitor to a Chinese mountain filmed a mischievous wild monkey pouring through the contents of a wallet it snatched from another tourist.

The video, filmed Tuesday, shows the monkey sitting on a fence at Mount Emei in Leshan, Sichuan province, and taking cash and other items out of a wallet.


The filmer said the monkey snatched the wallet from another tourist, who can be heard shouting as the simian discards the contents of the billfold.

The monkey eventually jumps down from the fence and flees with the wallet.
