An alcoholic monkey is facing life behind bars after he went on a bloody rampage.
The booze soaked animal, known as Kalua, set off on his trail of destruction when his owner died.
The oculist had fed the pet hard liquor at home in Marzapur in the Indian region Uttar Pradesh.
Upon his death the alcohol supply the monkey was reliant on ran dry, prompting him to take to the streets in a blind fury.
The animal indiscriminately attacked humans as he passed them, making a particular bee-line for young girls.
Numerous children were left needing plastic surgery after Kalua ripped at their faces with his fangs.
According to Patrika one of his victims died.
Zoo doctor Mohd Nasir told the publication how the monkey had been captured by keepers who injected him with sedatives.
He was placed in isolation following the biting spree.
Mr Nasir said: “There has been no change in his behaviour and he remains as aggressive as he was.
“It has been three years since he was brought here, but now it has been decided that he will remain in captivity all his life.”
It is feared that if the six-year-old monkey is allowed contact with other animals or humans he will return to his violent ways.
Since being locked up at Kanpur Zoo Kalua’s behaviour has not improved.
He regularly calls to female visitors who he then rushes and attempts to bite when they come over.
Kalua also refuses to eat any vegetables, subsisting on a purely meat based diet.
