Monkey Steals Man's iPhone, Then Makes Him Pay To Get It Back

Sure, macaques certainly are clever creatures - but these guys have humans down pat, and pat down, too.

Macaques living around the Uluwatu Temple, in Bali, evidently figured out that we really, really love our stuff, so much so that we're willing to pay a tasty price to get it back. BBC host Chris Packham, on assignment there for the program World's Sneakiest Animals, discovered firsthand the rather ingenious (albeit quite rude) way those Old World monkeys convince tourists to give them snacks.

Yes. They stole his iPhone.

It's hard to blame the macaques for their little acts of thievery. It is their home, so perhaps it's only fair that they take their slice.
