A monkey gatecrashed a picnic at West Coast Park and made off with a box of grapes, leaving children in shock and tears.
Stomper Lim took a video of the incident that occurred on Saturday (Feb 27).
In the video, a monkey can be seen approaching a group of two women and two young children who were having a picnic on the grass.
The monkey then snatched a Tupperware - which contained grapes, according to Lim - and fled, before climbing up a tree.
Screams and cries from the children can be heard as the monkey is seen trying to open the Tupperware.
Lim told Stomp: "The monkey made one of the children cry.
"It managed to open the Tupperware and took a few grapes inside the box. The entire Tupperware then fell down.
"The sight was amusing but at the same time, I am worried that the monkey might hurt children. I always bring my kids to West Coast Park, but this is the first time I have seen a monkey there."
Here's what to do when monkeys approach you in the open, according to the National Parks Board (NParks) website:
Stop whatever you are doing immediately.
Remain calm and quiet. Do not make sudden movements and do not maintain direct eye contact with the monkeys.
Look away and back off slowly. Do not turn away from the monkeys and run.
If you are holding an object which is attracting the monkeys, conceal or discard it.
Do not try to hit the monkeys.
If you have a child with you, put him/her on your shoulders. This will increase your perceived size, which could deter the monkeys from approaching you and your child.
Keep away from the area until the monkeys have left.
