Three monkeys caught by Forest department staff

Staff Reporter

KANCHEEPURAM : Three monkeys were caught in the trap laid down by the Forest Department officials at the District Collectorate here on Saturday.

It took more than an hour for the officials to catch the monkeys for which they laid a trap opposite the District Police Headquarters in the Collectorate campus. Their action did not created any problem to the general public since it was a weekend where the number of visitors to the Collectorate would always be very low.

On the other hand, the public who came to know about the presence of Forest Department officials in the District Headquarters, wanted them to carry out similar measure more frequently in residential areas also to help people live with out fear of monkeys striking at their houses in groups for food.

Meanwhile, visitors to Kancheepuram taluk office on Friday were taken by surprise to note an elephant standing near the Judicial Magistrate Court at around noon.

The elephant, which is used for "offering" blessing for some "consideration" by the mahout on the busy streets of the town regularly, was spotted by an officer of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at the Railway Road. Immediately, the officer goaded the animal and the mahout to the Court where the mahout was penalised by the Court for his action. The pachyderm was handed over to the owner.
