More than 30 monkeys, including the young ones, were suspected to be poisoned to death and stuffed in gunny bags in Telangana’s Mahabubabad district, a Forest Department official said on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the carcasses of the monkeys were found on a hillock near Shanigapuram village in Telangana, he added.

Post-Mortem could be conducted since the dead monkeys were in a highly decomposed state, the official claimed.

Forest and police officials are probing and inquiring people from nearby villages.

“The monkeys are suspected to have been poisoned to death. As of now who has done this act is not clear. Whetherfarmers (to protect their crop) or someone else. We are inquiring,” news agency PTI quoted the forest official.
