The incident is said to have taken place recently when a large group of monkeys entered the village and caused some damage, a group of villagers became so annoyed with them that they decided to teach them a lesson. One of the men caught hold of a monkey that had fallen into a water tube well and hanged him to death. What is saddening is that while the man was hanging the monkey, none of the other villagers expressed their disapproval on the cruelty that was unfolding before them and instead cheered for the man.
The perpetrators of the crime are being booked under the Wildlife Protection Act. The accused had resorted to hanging the money because he and other villagers felt that this would act as a warning to other monkeys and they wouldn’t ever enter the village again. The area is known to be one that does suffer from menace caused by monkeys but this action by locals cannot be justified by anything.
This is not the first time that the story of such brutality against monkeys has come to the forefront, in the month of June alone, 13 monkeys were found dead in a reservoir in Assam. The monkeys had died after they were fed poison by locals.
