KOLKATA (AFP) — A chimpanzee in Kolkata zoo took revenge on visitors by hurling stones at them, injuring a mother and her six-year-old daughter, newspapers reported Monday.
Babu, a male chimpanzee, was being teased by the packed Sunday afternoon crowds when he hit Mithu Mondal, 30, and her daughter Nikita.
"Some of the visitors threw pieces of bricks at a chimpanzee named Babu. He became furious and retaliated by throwing stones at them," S.K Chowdhury, the director of the zoo, told the Calcutta Telegraph.
The two victims were taken to hospital and released after treatment.
Last year Babu and a female chimpanzee escaped from their enclosure by breaking the lock.
