Moment entire family of monkeys swarm UK family's car at safari park!2021|01:31
This is the moment a family of monkeys swarmed a family car at a safari park. Footage shows the brazen animals sitting on the bonnet ripping apart the car's windscreen washers. Mum-of-three Charlotte Wilson, 38, had treated her family to a trip to Longleat Safari Park in Warminster during the Bank Holiday weekend. The family were driving through the tourist attraction around midday when a family of monkeys jumped onto their car. Charlotte grabbed her phone to record the ambush while telling her husband to squirt the windscreen wipers in a bid to get them off the vehicle. But rather than be frightened off the cheeky monkeys decided to drink from washers before deciding to tear them from the car. Teacher Charlotte, from Swindon, said: "The funny thing is, we were moaning about how the monkeys weren't paying us any attention. "Then all of a sudden a whole gang of them climbed on top of the car. "They were there for about 15 minutes and that gave them enough time to try and rip the car apart. "There were so many people in front we were just driving at a snail's pace so the only thing we could do was put the windscreen washers on. "They must have been thirsty as it didn't get them away, they just tried to drink it. "Also I'd like to point out it was just water in there. "There wasn't any screenwash so it's not a case of us trying to poison them. "They actually managed to dislodge the piping while they were pulling on it. "Luckily my husband works in the car trade so we were able to fix it pretty quick." The footage was taken August 30 2021.
