Monkey snatches 12-day-old baby from mother’s arms, fatally bites him

Monkey kills 12-day-old baby

Currently, there are over 25,000 monkeys in the city, according to municipal corporation officials.

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

News reports that the baby was snatched from his mother in the city of Agra, not far from the Taj Mahal.

The infant was rushed to hospital but he was declared dead on arrival.

Locals chased the monkey down after the mother raised the alarm, forcing the animal to abandon the baby's body on top of a building.

In May, two French tourists were injured by monkeys as they took selfies at the Taj Mahal.

"They threw stones at the monkey to force it to drop the baby but by the time he abandoned it, he had already attacked him severely on the face", Abhishek told CNN.

The local police added that two months ago another toddler was attacked in the same area. Devi's family members said, "She had lost so much blood that doctors could do nothing to save her".

"There are bruises on the child's left hand".

Monkey bites are the second most common attacks by animals in the South Asian country, after dogs. "They snatch eatables from passers-by or troop into homes, open fridges and steal food items".

Agra has been plagued by monkey menace for the past 10 years.

Mr Singh said that monkeys were becoming more aggressive as a result of being displaced from natural habitats, which have been destroyed by the expanding city.

"They come in search of food, but they snatch and attack as well".

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