Enraged monkeys kill 250 DOGS by dragging them to the top of buildings and dropping them off ‘out of revenge’ after pups killed one of their infants in Indian village

  • The horrific incidents were reported from Lavul village in India’s Maharashtra
  • According to local reports, there are now barely any dogs left in the village
  • Whenever the monkeys saw a pup, they would drag it up a high place and drop it
  • But without any dog targets the monkeys are now reportedly turning on children

Enraged monkeys have killed an Indian town’s entire population of around 250 dogs by dragging them to the top of buildings and trees and dropping them.

The acts of animal violence are reported to have been carried out ‘in revenge’ after some dogs killed one of the monkey’s infants.

The horrific incidents have been reported from Lavul village in Maharashtra’s Beed district, where the monkeys have been running rampant for the last month.

According to News18, the moment the troop of monkeys sees a pup, it is caught and taken up to a high place – the top of a building or a tree – and dropped to its death.

The reports say that in the last month alone, 250 dogs have been killed in this way, leaving Lavul with barely a single pup.

Pictures taken from video footage appeared to confirm the attacks. In images online, one monkey can be seen on a roof carrying a puppy to the edge, before throwing it.

Other footage, possibly of the incident that sparked the revenge attacks, showed dogs chasing monkeys through the village as local women and children ran for safety. The dogs appeared to be protecting a child.

Residents of the village contacted officials at the forest department, asking that they round up the murderous animals. However, when officers were sent to the village they were unable to catch even one monkey, News18 said.

According to the villagers, the monkeys are taking revenge.

They say that the violence erupted when some of the dogs killed a baby monkey.

After the officials failed to deal with the problem, villagers reportedly took it upon themselves to try and save the dogs.

But when they did, the monkeys fought back against their efforts, with the news station reporting some men even fell from heights themselves when trying to save dogs that had been dragged there.

Clearly not content with the extermination of the dogs in the village, monkeys are now said to be going after young children.

School children are reportedly being attacked by the monkeys, creating a further sense of panic among the villagers.

In one reported instance, an eight-year-old was grabbed and dragged by the monkeys, forcing villagers to throw stones at them to clear them off.
