Monkey steals newborn baby from home and drops him in water well
An autopsy revealed that the baby died of drowning.
The 16-day-old baby was sleeping in his home in India when the monkey entered the child’s room and snatched him in front of his horrified mother.
She tried to save her baby but was unable to.
The mother began screaming for help as she watched helplessly as the animal ran away with her baby.
Officers, villagers, and 30 forest department personnel began searching for the baby.
Three teams, led by Sangram Keshari Mohanty, the ranger of the Damapada Forest Range, combed the nearby forest along with villagers.
After several days of searching for the baby’s body, he was found inside a well in Orissa.
