Sikandarpur villagers dress up as bears to scare off monkeys from crop fields

In a bizarre incident, several Sikandarpur villagers in Uttar Pradesh dressed up as bears and started to roam around to scare away the monkeys and keep their crops safe.

Sikandarpur has been plagued by monkeys for some time. The animals are notorious for causing all sorts of mayhem, from attacking children they see as easy prey to throwing bricks and stones at people from high perches.

With over 2,000 monkeys creating ruckus and disturbing life in the village and the forest officials turning a convenient blind eye to the issue, the villagers decided to solve the problem on their own.

According to the reports, village head Ram Lalit Verma reportedly said, “We have now started taking turns in wearing the bear costume and roaming around the village. It was a relative who had told me about the idea and it is actually working.”

The villagers pulled in money and bought three bear costumes from a makeup artist for Rs 1,700 each.

It has been a few days since the bear scare began and the number of monkey attacks has already come down. Earlier, about 150 children had been attacked by monkeys in the village that has a population of about 5,200.
