Bus Driver Suspended After Letting Monkey ‘Drive’

An Indian bus driver who let a monkey behind the wheel of his vehicle was suspended on Saturday after a video of the incident went viral. The 36-year-old driver is seen smiling and patting the langur monkey as it sits on the steering wheel of the moving bus in footage shot by a passenger.

Driver M Prakash has been taken off duty for allowing the monkey to sit on the steering wheel and handle it,” T.S Latha, a spokesperson for the government’s road transport corporation in southern Karnataka state said. There were around 30 passengers on the bus at the time and none of them complained.
