A monkey drank a shot of rum and threatened bar patrons with a knife, according to reports out of Brazil.

United Press International reports firefighters were called to the Brazilian bar on February 17.

Fire investigators said the monkey downed a glass of rum and armed itself with a kitchen knife to chase men out of the bar. The monkey evidently had no problem with the women in the bar.

Firefighters were able to capture the monkey and release it back into the wild, but they were called shortly thereafter when the monkey started acting aggressively toward people living in another part of town.

It's not clear yet if the monkey will be released again or forced into permanent captivity.
