A monkey has reportedly been arrested as a tramp in Russia after 
joining a group of homeless people.

Gosha, a macaque, was bought by a rich family in Biysk, eastern 
Siberia, but was kicked out of their home after becoming 
uncontrollable, IMA-Press reported.

The monkey lived on the streets for months and was befriended by a 
group of homeless people.

Police arrested him after a raid on house where homeless people were squatting.

Police officials said they would settle Gosha in Novosibirsk Zoo 
because it was too expensive to "extradite" him back to Africa.
