It's a mad, mad, mad world!

Women in a Kenyan village are having a hard time chasing some monkeys away from their fields. Chomping on the crop, these monkeys are said to be completely unafraid of the women. Not even if the women put on clothes of their husbands. One harassed woman told BBC:

"When we come to chase the monkeys away, we are dressed in trousers and hats, so that we look like men," resident Lucy Njeri told the BBC News website. "But the monkeys can tell the difference and they don't run away from us and point at our breasts. They just ignore us and continue to steal the crops." In addition to stealing their crops, the monkeys also make sexually explicit gestures at the women, they claim. "The monkeys grab their breasts, and gesture at us while pointing at their private parts. We are afraid that they will sexually harass us," said Mrs Njeri.
