Indian Police Hunt Baby Snatching Monkey
As reported by BBC NEWS, police in India are on the lookout for a monkey that allegedly snatched a baby, whose body was later found inside a well in the eastern state of Orissa.
The baby’s mother says she saw the incident take place but was unable to rescue her son.
A relative found the baby’s body in a well behind the house on Sunday, a day after he was snatched by the monkey who had entered the child’s home.
“While monkeys attacking humans or entering houses in search of food are fairly common, this is the first case in which one has run away with a baby,” he added.
Police are working with a local tribe, who specialise in catching monkeys.
