Swimmers reacted with shock as a local monkey decided to take advantage of a public swimming pool in Mumbai on Tuesday (July 9).
Before taking the plunge, the monkey carefully observed fellow swimmers then reenacted their behavior, at times even keeping within the lanes.
The easy going authorities at the pool said that the monkey has been a regular visitor and is absolutely harmless.
The swimming pool manager said the monkey hopped over from a nearby garden, and after a few minutes of observing people swimming in the pool, decided to jump in and try it for himself.
Visitors were somewhat surprised by the addition of an ape in the waters but nobody complained.
Pool management made no attempt to restrict the new guest’s complimentary access.
