Police in India are searching for a monkey that carried off and killed a small child in the eastern state of Orissa.
The horrifying incident occurred early on Saturday morning when the guilty primate entered the family's home, grabbed the infant and then disappeared outside.

The baby's mother witnessed the kidnapping taking place but was unable to stop it.

The event sparked an extensive manhunt of the surrounding area however it was discovered on Sunday that the infant had sadly drowned after being dropped down a nearby well.

Authorities are now continuing to hunt for the monkey responsible.

"We hope to catch the monkey within a week," said local officer PC Pradhan.

"While monkeys attacking humans or entering houses in search of food are fairly common, this is the first case in which one has run away with a baby."

That's so sad. How horrible for that poor infant's mother. She looks so young. Sounds like the people have an awful problem with the monkey population.

There are some things I'd be better off never knowing about. They're just too horrific.

Monkey's are *******s, but don't mix them up with apes (ie gorillas, chimpanzees, etc) who are the intelligent ones.
