In a part-hilarious, part-shocking incident, a beer guzzling alcoholic monkey in UP’s Raebareli has become a nuisance for local shops and its owners. A video has recently emerged which shows the monkey quenching its thirst by guzzling beer straight from the bottle. As per a Free Press report, the monkey has been accused of stealing beer from humans and guzzling it down in the premises of the local alcohol shops.

The incident was brought to the notice of netizens after an Achalganj-based liquor shopkeeper shared the details to media and expressed his displeasure. An NDTV report later quoted District Excise Officer Rajendra Pratap Singh saying how efforts are on to deal with the beer-addicted creature. Further, assistance of the forest department has also been sought to catch the monkey.

As per reports from Achalganj, when the shopkeepers took to the local authorities about the non-paying ancestor of humans, they just asked to fend it off. Further, the shopkeepers also complained that if they resisted the monkey, it would scratch and bite people.

Earlier in 2020, a monkey named ‘Kalua’, was given “life-sentence” for similar “charges”. The monkey was owned by an occultist, who got it addicted to alcohol. Over the course of years, the monkey started getting more and more aggressive, and it was said that he bit as many as 250 persons in Mirzapur.
