As a woman was relaxing at Impala Park in Kisumu, monkeys that were in the nearby woods spotted her taking a soda and some biscuits, and they drew closer.

But one particular monkey wasn’t going to leave without having a taste of the soda. It sat on the table in front of her with its eyes glued on the soda.

The animal begged her for a sip with its eyes and she finally yielded. The monkey took a few sips but it had one more trick.

All along it had been eying the woman’s biscuits that were on her lap.

The monkey drew close enough and in a flash grabbed the packet of biscuits and then jumped onto a tree.
