Man made problem, monkey needs forest along with fruit tree, water now they don’t have their natural habitat nor wild character, where as there shape like wild monkey but not habit. PFA Haryana PIL is pending before the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Chandigarh since long, during hearing Hon’ble court asked the solution to all concerned respondents. We advised to shift monkey from locality to wild after necessary check up / rescue centers / amend the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 because monkey in human habitat be treated as a common animal not an wild one and their shifting be easy, where as you can’t shift monkey with out consultation of both DFO’s area from to be caught and then released. To keep them away with the presence of Langur is also violate the concerned legislation, sterilization may be the only solution to control their population.
Hence we have to find out the solution and keep them away in their natural habitat intact. We have a bad experience to keep them in cages like in Hanuman Vatika at Faruknagar in Haryana, this is my personnel observation not an comments.
Monkey family and group should be identified before shifting and whole group be relocated to avoid any problem.
