Entire troop of monkeys drops dead – fears of mystery infection outbreak

“The bodies were decomposing; we have to take all precautions. We have burnt few carcasses,” said District Forest Official, PN Mishra.

“The nearby water source is controlled by another group of monkeys that didn’t let this group of monkey’s access water, which might have resulted in their death.”

He explained that arrangements for better access to water sources in the forest are being made for the wild animals.

Mishra added that the internal organs of some of the dead monkeys have been sent to a laboratory for examination.
