Monkey To Inherit Couple's Fortune

A couple in India is leaving all of their property to their pet monkey.

Brajesh Srivastava and his wife Shabista say they were ostracised by their families because of their inter-faith marriage. He is Hindu and she is Muslim.

They adopted Chunmun after the monkey's mother died and treated him like their child.

They have succeeded in business ventures since they took him in and say if Chunmun outlives them, they plan on giving their entire estate to the monkey.

The couple didn't specify how much money could be coming Chunmun's way, other than to say they have millions of rupees in bank accounts. One million rupees is equal to about $16,000.

Chunmun isn't the only animal to rake it in.

When New York Hotel heiress Leona Helmsley died in 2007, she left the bulk of her $12 million estate to her lap dog, a little white maltese named Trouble.
