In a horrific incident, over 30 monkeys were allegedly stuffed in gunny bags after being poisoned to death in Telangana’s Mahabubabad district, a Forest Department official said on Wednesday.
The carcasses of the monkeys were on Tuesday found near Telangana’s Shanigapuram village, the official added.
Post-Mortem could not be conducted since the bodies of the monkeys were highly decomposed, as per the official.
As per reports, forest and police officials are investigating the case and are questioning people living in nearby villages.
“The monkeys are suspected to have been poisoned to death. As of now who has done this act is not clear. Whether farmers (to protect their crop) or someone else. We are inquiring,” news agency PTI quoted the forest official.
