Kanpur: Alcoholic monkey will serve ‘life sentence’ in India; Here’s why


Team Udayavani, Jun 21, 2020, 1:04 PM IST

An alcoholic 6-year-old monkey in India will remain in captivity for the rest of life for aggressive behavior

The monkey’s name is Kalua and he is serving a “life sentence” at the Kanpur zoo after officials say he bit over 250 people, including one who died.

According to the reports, Kalua was a pet monkey of a local occultist who would regularly give him liquor to drink.

Over a period of time, the monkey became alcoholic and when the occultist died, Kalua stopped getting liquor and became aggressive. After several efforts, Kalua was caught and brought to the Kanpur zoo.

Mohd Nasir, Zoo doctor said, “We kept him in isolation for some months and then shifted him to a separate cage. There has been no change in his behaviour and he remains as aggressive as he was. It has been three years since he was brought here, but now it has been decided that he will remain in captivity all his life,”.

It is said that captivity would be best because the monkey would pose a threat to people if he were set free.
