Four wild monkeys have sent waves of fear and panic among residents of Rawalpindi as they attack cows and chickens and injure them in the Rata Amral neighbourhood of the city.
According to residents, the monkeys climbed the mobile tower in the area and would jump onto the roofs of houses and attack their domestic animals. As a result, parents in the locality are also fearful of letting their children go out onto the streets fearing an attack.
Rescue 1122 officials said that they are working to catch the monkeys but have been unable to. They added that they’ve reached out to the local wildlife department for assistance.
Last year, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) had blamed monkeys for damaging street lights in Islamabad.
