Capuchin Monkey Disapproves of Inequality in Viral Video

A capuchin monkey expresses extreme disapproval of inequality in a video that Dr. Frans de Waal presented at TED Talks and is now going viral. The monkey thought he was getting grapes like his friend, but instead got a less favorable cucumber. He was very unhappy about it. Photo Credit: Armando Maynez via Flickr.

I guess it's OK if he eventually got grapes...and soon after they did the other experiments in a naturalistic setting

Not sure ethically if this is a great video. Well firstly they are in cages. Secondly they are being used for research and thirdly they are being pretty cruel to one of them and monkeys by nature are highly intelligent and that monkey knew he/she was fed up being used. That wasnt a teasing joke it was mean in finding out who riled he/she would be.

Nope, wasnt impressed however I WAS IMPRESSED.shouting here that this clever monkey demonstrated that it didnt like being fooled around with. Whats good for the 'goose' is good for the 'gander' attitude is good. So what they were demonstrating about what just that...... equal food when there are more than one......anything!

Isn't that cruel! I'm sure that poor thing suffered emotionally during this test. Why would you deliberately hurt a little thing's feelings? Give them ALL grapes and get them away from people like this!
