An animal-loving bus driver in India has been put on leave after he was caught red-handed engaging in monkey business.
Video showed a simian sitting atop the steering wheel for a few minutes, appearing to take control as driver Prakash changed gears. The Times of India reported Saturday that Indian transportation officials have removed Prakash from duty and asked for an inquiry into his conduct.
“He is an animal-lover, but he should not have allowed this while driving a bus,” an official said.
The monkey came onto the bus with a passenger. No one appeared to be injured, and no one complained about the animal, according to The Times of India.
