Kalua, a six-year-old monkey who was previously owned by an occultist who fed him monkey meat and liquor, was left with nothing to drink and a hunger for violence after his occultist-owner died.

The neglected monkey — likely in the throes of withdrawal, began roaming the neighborhood and attacking people, particularly the faces of women and children leaving 250 people injured and one dead.

Alcohol is known to have addictive effects on humans, and apparently, this is also true for some species like Kalua in the animal kingdom.

Years of constant supply of booze by his occultist owner, Kalua developed some level of tolerance for alcohol. However, this alcohol-deprived monkey became restless and aggressive when his owner mysteriously died in 2017.

Booze Fueled Kalua Went On A Violent Biting Rampage

Most monkeys are no more than about 2 feet tall, but they’re known to be four times as strong as humans.

That’s how Kalua was able to horribly tear through 250 people — and killed one — while on a rampage in India. The Business Insider reports that the incident happened in 2017 in the city of Mirzapur, India.

India’s forest and zoo teams went into action immediately; they were notified of Kalua’s rampage.

After eluding trappers in the forests, the monkey’s frantic biting spree finally came to an end when authorities captured him — but only after hundreds of people were savagely bitten or mutilated.

Unfortunately, the six-year-old monkey left some horrific lacerations in his wake, including numerous people who required plastic surgery after the attack, dozens of young children whose faces he ripped open with his fangs and one person who died as a result of the injuries he sustained from Kalua’s attack.

Kalua’s Victims Were Women And Young Girls

According to The Daily Mail, Kalua attacked his victims based on appearance and height. Women and young girls were mostly his victims as he took his aggression to the streets.

After his capture, Kalua was taken to Kanpur Zoological Park in hopes of rehabilitation, but experts have now officially deemed him as a threat and relegated him to a life behind bars.



In an official statement, the lead Zoo doctor in Kanpur, Mohd Nasir said:

“We kept him in isolation for some months and then shifted him to a separate cage.”

“There has been no change in his behavior and he remains 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.”

Kalua’s Alcohol Addiction

Kalua’s alcohol addiction was immediately obvious to the zoologists at the zoo, where he was condemned to solitary confinement. However, they never envisaged his vehement detestation for vegetables.

This lead expert to believe Kalua was constantly fed with an exclusively meat-centric diet in addition to a steady supply of alcohol. According to The New York Post, experts averred that the sudden lack of meat had an impact on Kalua’s aggression just as the disappearance of his regular drinks.

Even more disturbing, they believe Kalua was fed with monkey meat on a daily basis. Throughout his stay in the zoo, Kalua purportedly attacked female zookeepers at a glaringly higher rate than males.

The aggressive monkey also attacks his fellow monkeys whenever he gets a chance to experience life outside of isolation.

This led the zookeepers at Kanpur Zoological Park charged with re-assimilating the primate — for the last three years — to declare him too dangerous to live among his kind, and have sentenced him to solitary confinement for the rest of his life.

Although the cause of death and theological beliefs of Kalua’s occultist owner is yet to be uncovered, the monkey has clearly had trouble adapting to his new surroundings.

Not even the cage keeper has gained enough trust yet to make friends with the unwillingly sober monkey.

Hopefully, solitary confinement will help him adjust to his new living conditions and learn to play well with others in the near future.

Free-Roaming Monkeys Continue To Be A Menace

Barely a month after Kalua was condemned to solitary confinement, a group of free-roaming monkeys in Meerut, near Delhi, invaded the campus of a medical college and stole three coronavirus-positive blood samples.

This event raised concerns that the animals would likely spread the novel virus where ever they go. Inspection by Meerut Medical college superintendent Dheeraj Raj, however, revealed that none of the samples had been damaged.

The local official also claimed that there was “no evidence” that monkeys in the area had transmitted COVID-19 to humans following the incident.

This shocking story is not the only incident about monkeys to have emerged from the subcontinent.

Charges like robbery, kidnapping, and murder, are just among the few others that have been directed at the wandering species.

This disturbing incident was followed by a motorcycle-riding monkey that was caught on camera kidnapping a toddler in Tanjungsari Village, Indonesia.

The video showed the primate speeding along a narrow street on a bike before reaching a bench where a woman sat with her three young daughters.The animal grabbed one of the girls by her dress and pulled her from the bench.

The situation became threatening when the monkey continued dragging the child along the road and was only stopped after a man managed to scare it away from the toddler.
