30 monkeys poisoned to death

The carcasses of as many as 30 monkeys suspected to have been poisoned to death by miscreants were found on the outskirts of Kerethonnuru in the taluk on Sunday.

Villagers noticed the carcasses at a desolate place near Kanive Borappa temple in the morning. The dead monkeys were tied up in gunny bags and dumped there. Passersby informed the Forest department and the police.

Forest personnel who visited the spot suspected that the monkeys have been poisoned as there were no external injuries on them. They apprised their senior officers of the incident and directed the villagers to perform the last rites of the animals.

Residents of Kerethonnuru and Thirumalapura pooled in money and conducted the last rites as per the Hindu tradition.
