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.
