A monkey in Indonesia appears to be on a mission to stop people smoking, judging by its rather militant behaviour.

The abstemious primate stole a packet of cigarettes from a tourist and proceeded to rip them to shreds.

A video of the incident was captured at the Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud by another visitor, according to UPI.

The video was posted along with this comment: "In the sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary visitors are requested not to smoke.

"One militant macaque takes matters into its own hands, stealing one visitors unused cigarettes and pulling them apart in front of him."
