Monkeys Fought for Same Reason as Humans – Hunger & Survival

As the region is popular destination – and a shrine – thousands of monkeys reside there and get food by the commotion of ever-passing tourists. While the cause of the fight couldn’t be ascertained, several reports are mentioning the fact that due to the COVID-19 restrictions, tourists didn’t visit the city much, and hence, the monkeys couldn’t get their hands on food.

Much akin to humans, these gangs of monkeys too fought for reasons such as survival of the fittest and the desperation of the hunger. The person who apparently recorded the clip claimed that he went on the building’s third floor when he heard the screeching of the monkeys. While he said that monkeys are common in that locality, it was a never-seen-before view of monkeys engaged in a brawl. The man further claimed that the scene was much like a gangster fight in a film.

He further added that the matters went out of the hands when the people on the streets started to honk, aggravating the monkeys and making them indulge in the warfare. An eye-witness was reportedly quoted saying-

“As a result of this incident, several monkeys were injured. There was blood on the road surface. And not until the leader of the losing side resigned himself, they did not retreat.”
