Hordes of monkeys plague resettled families in Vanni

[TamilNet, Saturday, 07 August 2010, 05:19 GMT]
Monkeys in Vanni having multiplied in numbers after the war on Vanni invade into the temporary sheds of uprooted families hastily resettled by Sri Lanka government without clearing the area of the overgrown shrubs and jungle, sources in Vanni said. The resettled uprooted families in Vanni left to fend on their own without the needed assistance and subjected to occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) harassment are further assailed with the problem and danger of monkeys, the sources added.

The resettled families already restricted of their movement due to the danger of landmines yet to be cleared now have to keep vigil to drive the monkeys invading into their dwellings to steal their meagre belongings.

The vegetable cultivation and other such initial ventures by the resettled families are devoured by the monkeys which are difficult to chase out.
