Video: Thief chops down a tree to steal bicycle

Footage has emerged from China of a man cutting down a tree so he can steal a bike.

The CCTV video, captured in Changsha, Hunan Province on Monday, shows the man using a saw to cut down the tree. The theft gives endless possibilities for puns (though we’ll resist temptation).  He then loads the bike onto his motorcycle and drives off. It’s not known whether the man has since been arrested.
