An alcoholic killer monkey has left one man dead and 250 injured after going on the rampage when his booze supply dried up in India.The inebriated imp, known as Kalua, was formerly the pet of an occultist who fed him hard liquor at his home in Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh,the Daily Mail reported.
But after his owner died, the bereft animal stopped getting his supply of spirits and began prowling the streets in a furious rage. The simian targeted women and girls in particular, with dozens of children left needing plastic surgery after he ripped open their faces with his fangs.
The animal has since been caught and will now be kept in captivity for the rest of its life. One of Kalua’s 250 biting victims died, IANS reported.
The six-year-old monkey was eventually captured and hauled into Kanpur Zoo where zoologists discovered that he was not only an alcoholic, but that he refused to eat vegetables.
The scientists believe that the occultist must have also fed the monkey meat, another possible cause for his indefatigable anger.
According to the Mail, It was also noted that the monkey had a propensity for attacking female zookeepers and would also attack other monkeys if put in the same cage.
It has therefore been decided that Kalua will remain locked in a cage at the zoo for the rest of his days.
