Nargund(Gadag): A video of a monkey trying to console a crying woman is now going viral on a social media platform.

In the video, a woman can be seen crying when the monkey walks up to her and puts its hands on her shoulder and then pats her head to console her.

It is gathered that the incident was recorded after the death of an 80-year-old man in Nargund, when his relatives gathered to grieve with the family.

The monkey entered the house, consoled the man’s relatives for some time and then eventually walked away, said sources.

This was not the first time the monkey was also spotted at the funeral, it was spotted in many other funerals before said sources.

“The sound of loud wailing possibly drew its attention. It attends the funerals and mimics how we console each other. Now we feel that no funeral is complete until the monkey arrives,” said a resident of this village
