A man went to extreme lengths to steal a bicycle, by cutting down the tree it was chained to.
CCTV captured the incident in Changsha city, in central China's Hunan Province in the early hours of Monday morning.
In the clip, the man is seen approaching the bicycle, which appears to be safely attached to the tree.
He then took out a saw and began hacking away at the trunk.
Eventually the tree crashed to the ground.
He then quickly unhooked the bike from the tree trunk, before putting it on the back of his motorcycle and riding off down the street.
