Monkey kills 12-day-old Indian baby

Monkey kills 12-day-old baby

"There are too many monkeys in the area".

"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.

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

"By the time the primate released the baby it had injured him badly", said Agra Police Assistant Superintendent Abhishek.

People nearby ran after the monkey, which "only dropped [the baby] when people chased it with sticks and threw stones at it", a police supervisor says, per the BBC.

According to a new report from The New York Times , it's the OS that Facebook executives are encouraged to use. Cook said that Apple wouldn't traffic in a customer's personal life and that privacy was a human right.


The bleeding infant was rushed to hospital but 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.

Last month, another man also died as a result of an attack involving a group of monkeys.

The baby's grandmother Pushpa Devi told the station the family would "never recover" from the sudden, shocking loss.

"We have registered a case of unnatural death and are getting an autopsy done".

McClure and her boyfriend Mark D'Amico then set up a GoFundMe page to help Bobbitt, raising almost $400,000 from well-wishers. NBC reported that D'Amico and McClure turned themselves in to authorities Wednesday, but Bobbitt's whereabouts were unknown.


The increased aggressiveness has sparked outcries from environmental and protest groups concerned about the animals' place in India.

Many monkeys in India, who are fed by Hindus who revere the monkey god Hanuman, are turning aggressive due to their shrinking natural habitat.

"They are in all the five railway stations in the city, in hospitals, hotels and roads.

Monkey attacks have become so frequent that women and children are afraid of going out", said social activist Shravan Kumar Singh. "They come in search of food, but they snatch and attack as well", he said.

The monkey grabbed the infant and jumped away along several rooftops in a crammed district of the global tourist hotspot, he said.

Some local organisations were calling for monkeys to be sterilised and excluded from wildlife protection legislation, he said.
