India -Horrifying gang of 400 monkeys force panicked villagers to escape homes

Hundreds of marauding monkeys sparked a mass flight from an Indian village after they damaged crops and robbed homes.

Approximately 20 families moved away after being tormented by more than 400 macaques who wander the village of Narasapuram.

Farmers have also been urged to move to neighbouring villages to work as labourers on other farms after their crops were destroyed.

The difficulty began around 15 years ago when a number of monkeys were kicked out of the neighbouring city of Hyderabad by poachers and evacuated nearby.

However, some farmers are gradually beginning to return after the newly-elected ‘sarpanch’ – village head – hired a team of monkey catchers with villagers chipping in 1,500 rupees (£16) each..

They have so far caught 100 monkeys and released them deep in the forest.
