Macaque Monkeys

In what can only be described as a sad story, a farmer in southern Nepal shot dead his 12-year-old son, after mistaking him for a monkey trying to steal his crops.

The 12-year old boy, Chitra Bahadur Pulami, had been climbing a tree to chase away Macaque Monkeys that had become a nuisance to the family but his father Gupta Bahadur, 55, spotted the boy and opened fire, wrongly believing him to be one of the animals.

According to Arun Poudel, deputy superintendent of police in the remote Arghakhanchi district, “The son was hiding in a tree at their farm to chase away monkeys that used to come searching for food in the maize field… The son died on the spot after Gupta Bahadur mistakenly thought there was a monkey in the tree and opened fire. Our preliminary investigation shows that the father was unaware that his son had gone to the maize field to chase the monkeys.”

The police superintendent continues, “Both Gupta Bahadur and the gun that he used in shooting his son are now under the custody of the police.”

Meanwhile, the farmer, Gupta Bahadur was quoted as saying “I realised my mistake only when my son fell down and got stuck in one of the tree’s branches.”
