We've read about plenty of underwear thieves in our day (like this guy and this guy and, well, you get the point.) But none of these panty pilferers were so brazen as the monkeys at Knowsley Safari Park, who have taken to breaking into rooftop luggage and stealing the unmentionables in broad daylight.

The largest baboons jump up and down on the box until the lock bursts open, when the rest swarm in to sift through the goodies before retreating with the desired clothing and undergarments.

"Let's face it, nobody wants to see a baboon running up a tree with their underwear," says Safari Park General Manager, David Ross. (We beg to differ.)

We get that it's fun to steal things, but just what do monkeys want with our underwear anyway?
