‘Monkey gang’ member executed in Japan as marauding macaques run amok

A marauding monkey that’s been harassing people in Japan was recently tracked down and executed by a team of “specially commissioned hunters.” The macaque was part of  a “monkey gang” that is responsible for more than 50 attacks in the city of Yamaguchi. 

For close to one month, a mob of Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata), the northernmost species of non-human primates, has terrorized the city, biting and scratching residents. The monkeys haven’t just attacked people in the streets — they have also learned how to open sliding doors and climb into windows, the BBC reported. In one incident, a monkey broke into a kindergarten classroom and leapt on a 4-year-old girl. In another incident, a monkey climbed through a window and supposedly tried to snatch a baby.
