One monkey terrorises Jaleshwor, bites 7 kids
Feb 28, 2016-
A simian that has made into Jaleshwor Municipality has become a cause for worry for local residents here, as it has not only been attacking humans but also stealing foods and laying waste to houses and surrounding areas.
At least seven children of Phulhatta area in Parikauli of the municipality have been bitten by the monkey.
The injured children include Aalaak Jha, 7, Krishna Mukhiya, 8, Chandan Jha, 7, Anju Kumari, 8, Usha Kumari, 7, Babita Kumari, 12, of Jaleshwor-17 and Bikram Mahato of Jaleshwor-18.
The monkey was first spotted in the village three days ago. The primate chases down anyone who it finds alone. According to locals, the monkey has been destroying their grains and stealing foods apart from damaging other stuff in the houses and around.
Whenever the villagers chase the simian away, it sneaks into a jungle nearby but makes sure it returns again to carry out what it does the best: monkey business.
