Monkey snatches 12-day-old baby from mother’s arms, fatally bites him

World       by Web Desk | Published

This is the latest incident in a spate of monkey attacks in Agra, where they have become increasingly desensitised to humans.

"The main door of the house was open and my wife was breastfeeding our son", the 12-day-old baby's father was quoted as saying by The Times of India.

Last week a girl was grievously injured in Agra in a ferocious attack by monkeys.

She was later found with severe injuries and transported to hospital, where she died.

Ajay Kaushal, the police officer in charge of the Sikandra police station, told Reuters on Wednesday that a group of monkey's entered the house, but only one went after the child.

The infant was rushed to hospital but he was declared dead on arrival.

This is the heartbreaking moment a tiny baby monkey can be seen crying over its dead mother's body after she was hit by a auto.

Victor of Mega Millions' record $1.5 billion jackpot still hasn't claimed prize
It matched all six numbers - 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5 - and became South Carolina's first ever Mega Millions jackpot win. The $1.5 billion Mega Millions prize has still not been claimed three weeks after the victor was announced .

In May, a group of monkeys attacked two foreign tourists at the Taj Mahal.

The animal bit the child several times before dropping him on a neighbor's roof after local residents chased the monkey away with sticks and stones, the BBC reported.

"There are bruises on the child's left hand".

"There is a big monkey menace in the area".

"They come in search of food, but they snatch and attack as well".

In 2018, the Indian government said it had approved a pilot project for immune-contraception to control the population of wild animals including monkeys in the city.

A group of local organisations and individuals are also campaigning for authorities to compensate victims of monkey attacks and for the sterilisation of monkeys and their exclusion from legislation protecting wildlife, Singh said.
