A visitor to Fuzhou Zoo had his phone stolen and his arm scratched after he took photos of a group of Assamese macaques.

Zheng Dong was taking snaps of the monkeys when one of them suddenly snatched his phone and started chewing it.

Zheng climbed over the railings and tried to get his phone but three of the macaques flew into a rage and scratched his arm.

With the help of zookeepers Zheng got his phone back, but it was damaged beyond repair. He is now claiming compensation from the zoo.
