They open doors and windows
Aggressive monkeys terrorize the Japanese
In the Japanese city of Yamaguchi, the residents are terrorized by monkeys. Monkeys even enter homes.
In the past few weeks, 42 people have been scraped and bitten in monkey attacks in the Japanese city of Yamaguchi. “It’s unusual to see so many attacks in a short period of time,” a city official said Monday. In order to deal with aggressive animals, the authorities now use nerve-calming weapons.
Townspeople reported monkeys opening sliding doors or climbing through windows. “I heard screaming on the ground floor and ran quickly downstairs when I saw a monkey leaning on my baby,” a father told the Mainichi Shimbun.
Originally, monkeys attacked only children and women, but recently men have also fallen victim to it. So far, the police have not been able to lure monkeys into the traps that have been set. Japanese macaques are part of the street scene in Yamaguchi. They are considered a nuisance because they also attack cultivated crops.
