Indian Driver Suspended For Letting Monkey "Drive" Bus (VIDEO)

The internet is not pleased with his punishment!

An Indian bus driver, M. Prakash, has been suspended by his employer after a video of him went viral. His offence? Allowing a passenger's langur monkey to sit on his steering wheel while he drove the bus.

 

Apparently when the passenger boarded, the monkey didn't feel like sitting with everyone else and insisted on having the best seat on the coach. The driver didn't totally relinquish control - he always kept a hand on the wheel - but the monkey looks like he's doing his best to get everyone where they need to go.

 

 

None of the 30 passengers seemed to mind and the cute video found a lot of fans online, but the bus company was less than amused. "Driver M. Prakash, 36, who was at the wheel has been taken off duty for allowing the monkey to sit on the steering and handle it," said a company spokesperson, continuing, "An inquiry is being conducted into the incident. As safety of passengers is paramount, a driver cannot risk the life of passengers by allowing a monkey to sit on the steering and handle it."

 

Twitter users, as always, had a lot of opinions about the matter...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So what do you think? Innocent and cute or reckless and dangerous?

 

We just want to know if the monkey ever got his paycheck.

The entire situation reminds me of a joke: A cop is sent over to look over a terrible car crash. Nobody is alive except for a small monkey. The cop looks at the monkey and jokingly states "I wish you could tell me what happened." The monkey immediately looks knowingly at the cop and nods. "Okay, what were everyone doing before the crash?" The monkey mimics smoking a cigarette. "Smoking." The monkey then mimics drinking. "Drinking. Go on." The monkey starts making kissing faces. "And making out. Thanks, but I have a question. If they were doing all that, what were you doing?" The monkey gleefully mimics steering a wheel.

Monkeys shouldn’t be used as pets. People finding it cute would want to do the same thing, weather it’s having the monkey be a chauffeur or a dancer, bartender
