Monkey menace terrorises Myagdi locals

BENI, MYAGDI: Monkey menace has put the locals of Galeshwordham area in the district at the receiving end of daily disturbance.

“Hordes of monkeys stray into the villages from the local Salleri forest, and eat and destroy crops in the farmland,” complained the locals.

They also enter houses and eat stored grains, apart from troubling pilgrims visiting Galeshwordham Temple.

“The monkeys were brought from Pashupatinath Temple premises and released into the area, adding to their numbers,” said the locals.
