In a bizarre incident, monkeys in Maharashtra’s Beed district have killed around 250 dogs over the last one month.

The ongoing enmity between the monkeys and the canines started in Majalgaon after the canines attacked and killed an infant monkey. 

In retaliation, the monkeys were reportedly seen dragging puppies onto rooftops and trees and throwing them down for the past three months.

The attempts by the local people to put an end to this animosity went in vain. Despite them informing the forest department, the officials initially could do little. The monkeys meanwhile went berserk and even started attacking school children.

In one reported instance, an eight-year-old was mauled and dragged away by the monkeys, forcing the villagers to pelt stones at them to scare them off. The villagers had been a worried lot since then.

The aggressive monkeys managed to kill around 250 dogs over the last one month, according to reports.

Thereafter the forest department staff descended into Majalgaon and with the help of the local police managed to capture the monkeys that have been terrorising the village.
