This was the sad scene that unfolded on February 5 in Mumbai, India, for one monkey who had become the scorn of a community.

According to local residents, this capture was a long time coming. For six months, the macaque, along with other monkeys, were allegedly causing trouble in the community with antics like stealing food and tearing up pillows that were for sale,AFP reported.


Residents complained to local government officials, who then brought in a professional monkey catcher (which is a thing in India, a country where monkeys mingling with humans is the norm), who lured the animal out with fruit as bait.
