According to recent reports, monkey attacks are increasing, with a spate of violent incidents.
In June, more than 50 people were injured in Kolkata when the primates attacked residents of three villages in Swarupnagar. And since July, three deaths have been caused by monkey attacks.
A young boy died on July 15 after a group of monkeys took him from his father’s arms.
The four-month-old was thrown from the roof of a house in Bareilly by the primates.
On July 30, a 35-year-old woman was attacked by a monkey and died two weeks later.
It comes after more horrific incidents in 2021 where wild monkeys killed 250 dogs.
They dragged the animals up buildings and trees and dropped them.

Residents of the villages of Majalgaon and Lavul said the violence was committed “in revenge” after a pack of dogs killed one of the monkeys’ babies.
In another attack in 2020, a 13-year-old girl died after falling from a roof while monkeys chased her.
She was reportedly collecting clothes drying on the roof of her home in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh state, when the vicious animals attacked her.
It was reported that she tried to run away but slipped and fell off the roof.
