How strong are the monkeys?

  Recently, in a small town in India, a group of crazy monkeys threw at least 250 puppies from heights after a group of dogs killed a small monkey. After almost killing all the dogs here, the “red-eyed” monkey group did not stop there, and even some children were attacked by monkeys on their way to school.
  Monkeys kill dogs for revenge
   Recently , in a small town in Maharashtra, India, a group of crazy monkeys threw at least 250 puppies from heights and fell to their death after a group of dogs killed a small monkey .
   The death of the little monkey sparked the rage and revenge of the monkey group, a group of monkeys rushed into the village in the small town, rampaged, grabbed the puppy, took it to a high place, and then threw the puppy alive.
   After almost killing all the dogs here, the “red-eyed” monkey group did not stop there, and even some children were attacked by monkeys on their way to school.
   In the end, the forestry department decided to set up traps and traps, and only two monkeys were caught. However, even after being captured, these irascible monkeys still barked their teeth in the cage and were extremely aggressive. Forestry officials said they would be taken to the forest for release.
  The vendetta between monkeys and dogs affects humans
   In fact , similar incidents of monkeys attacking humans have already occurred in India.
   In October 2021, Muhammad Kurban, an Indian man, was hit on the head by a brick dropped by a monkey while passing a house and died; in September 2021, Sushma Devi was on the balcony of his house was attacked by a group of monkeys. In order to avoid the attack, Dai Wei was forced to jump off the building and finally died of her injuries; in 2020, a family of five in India slept in the shade in the yard. There was a guava tree in the yard of the family, which attracted the attention of the monkeys. The courtyard wall was torn down by monkeys, resulting in the death of a family of 5…
   Such a terrifying act, one cannot help but ask questions: Are these monkeys planning to overthrow the status of humans in the biosphere?
   In fact, the monkeys’ atrocities against puppies and their attacks on humans are not out of malicious revenge, nor are they necessarily motivated to challenge the “master of the earth”, but for survival factors such as food, status, and territory.
   In nature, the “vendetta drama” staged for the continuation of the race often occurs.
   For example, in Belarus, the fight between wolves and lynxes is very fierce. Both wolves and lynxes try to protect their children and at the same time eliminate each other’s children as much as possible. The mating period of lynx is from February to April every year. In order to eliminate possible threats to their cubs after birth, lynx often hunt wolf cubs frequently at this time.
   And the same motivation applies to Indian monkeys. Because the local dog group killed the baby monkey, the monkey group felt that their cubs were threatened and may be in danger of “severing offspring” in the future. That being the case, it is better to strike first, and let the other party “cut off children and grandchildren” as soon as possible. So, this is the scene of the monkey group falling to the death of the puppy.
   The reason why monkeys frequently attack humans is also out of similar survival pressure. As India accelerates urban development and construction, monkeys’ natural habitats are being destroyed. As a result, they are forced to find new homes in cities, where the monkeys recklessly invade government buildings, temples, snatch food and scare away passersby.
  Why not hunt and kill?
   However , the reduction of forest area is only one reason why monkeys are “running rampant” in cities. Another reason why they are so rampant is that Indians are very laissez-faire towards monkeys.
   In June 2020, an alcoholic monkey in Uttar Pradesh, India, suddenly became addicted to alcohol and changed his temperament, attacking more than 200 people and causing casualties. Because the owner of this monkey is very fond of drinking, he likes to feed the monkey with wine and meat on weekdays. Over time, monkeys have become addicted to alcohol.
   Why don’t Indians kill these monkeys who are rampaging around the city and hurting people everywhere? This is because Indians are very fond of the monkey god Hanuman. In Hindu mythology, Hanuman, brave and agile, able to fly through the clouds, is not only well-known in India, but also highly respected in Southeast Asian countries. Therefore, even if monkeys are rampant, they will still adopt a doting and respectful attitude.
   However, although these monkeys cannot be killed directly, Indians have come up with all kinds of wonderful ways to deal with them. For example, the New Delhi government once hired 40 young security guards and dressed them up as langurs, the macaques’ natural enemies. The men painted their faces black, put on hoods, and then imitated the monkeys’ calls before driving the monkeys back into the woods. However, this trick was soon seen by the clever monkeys, and they returned to the city again, becoming more presumptuous.
   After that, the Indians with big brains even thought of a way to train a large number of ferocious “South Asian Vervet Monkeys” to drive them away from “Rhosic Macaques”.
   A small town in northern India is trying to sterilize monkeys. However, the number of monkeys in India is too large. Not to mention the huge cost, how to catch them one by one for surgery is a big problem.
   In fact, not just monkeys, in Indian religion, almost every animal can find its place, even mice.
   In the western Indian state of Rajasthan, devout Hindus built a rat temple in the fifteenth century. Today, this rat temple is not only full of incense, but thousands of rats in the temple have also been specially protected and fed. Because locals believe that among the thousands of rats, 5 white rats are the incarnations of a holy Hindu priestess and her 4 sons.
   In today’s India, tens of thousands of poor people are dying on the streets due to the epidemic, and hundreds of farmers are struggling to survive because of the food crisis. And those animals that roam around the city are treated more honorably than people, which is a great irony!
