Animals paying for the faults of humanity ?
The HP Forest Department has urged the Union Ministry of Environment and Forest to declare monkeys as vermin within #Shimla municipal limits. There have been several cases of attacks by monkeys and their concentration has increased in the urban areas.
It is under Section 62 of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972, that the monkeys can be declared as vermin. Once declared #vermin, to check their growing number govt will be free to undertake culling, export for laboratory testing of drugs etc.
