MONKEYS RIOT IN RIO

The capuchin monkeys that roam the streets of Rio de Janeiro are so freakin' adorable that their human neighbors can't resist giving them people food as treats. But this is a trend with consequences — consequences even more dire than the monkeys getting so chunky that they lose their lanky charm.

Emboldened by human contact, and addicted to the crack that is processed snack food, gangs of adolescent capuchins are coping with the seasonal shortage of natural food by breaking into homes and looting kitchens. They've been spotted stealing bananas and bottles of milk, so at least they're healthier than their teenage human counterparts.
