This is the moment when a group of monkeys teaches a cheeky rat that had been stealing their food in a Chinese animal park a lesson.

Video footage, filmed by a visitor, shows the monkeys expelling the rat as it tries to hide under the food bowl.

Then, after grabbing the rodent, one of the troop swings it by its tail, hitting its head against rocks in the enclosure in Quzhou, Zhejiang province.

The visitor who filmed the footage, identified only by her last name as Ms. Dong, had taken her family to the park for the day.

The monkeys found the rat after it crawled out from under a bowl of food.

The clip shows that after the stunned rat stops moving, a monkey carries it to the water hole, apparently to drown it.

After repeatedly dunking it in the water, the monkey nudges the rat to see if it can still move.

But the cunning rat has just played dead and runs towards it as soon as the monkey loosens its grip.

The clip closes with the rat disappearing through a narrow hole in the rocks.

Ms. Dong explained, “I’ve seen the rats before and I thought they weren’t bothering the monkeys, and I certainly didn’t expect them to hit them.”

I guess they weren’t impressed that the rat stole their food.
