A handful of Singaporeans responded to the incident caught on camera, sharing their concern over the monkey’s actions. “I hope this monkey doesn’t go around telling his family about the rad new ‘fruits’ he found that are only available from human habitats.  Primates can set social trends among themselves from just like humans. Before we know it there’s going to be an epidemic of monkeys invading for ang ku kueh.”

“Been terrorised by these monkeys for years,” shared another person. “Even after installing window grills (I live on the 4th floor by the way), we’ve had a few small ones contort themselves to squeeze through. Once they stole my only box of pineapple tarts from our store room. Sealed, so they couldn’t open also. Probably got thrown out in the forest somewhere. They say don’t feed them but they are literally sneaking into our homes to steal food.”
