According to Liberty Times, the six-year-old pet monkey, Kalua, received a life sentence of solitary confinement at India's Kanpur Zoo earlier this week after he indiscriminately attacked people across the Mirzapur district, resulting in one death. Many of the victims, primarily women and girls, had to have plastic surgery to repair the bite wounds left by the simian.
Local authorities said Kalua was formerly owned by an "occultist" who routinely supplied him liquor to drink, which turned him into an alcoholic. They said the monkey became very aggressive three years ago when his owner died and left him no avenue to acquire more alcohol. [FULL STORY]
