The man works at a market in Sizhou, China, where he has taught three monkeys to ride bicycles.
But after he thrashed one, the animals struck back.
One twisted his ear, then another sank its teeth into his head.
A third monkey snatched up the trainer’s cane and beat him over the head until the stick broke.
Ouch! Another jumps on his head and bites him
The man said: ‘They were once wild and these performances don’t always come naturally to them.
'They may have built up some feelings of hatred towards me.’
