While the monkeys initially created a chaos when attempted to be rescued using boats, they finally walked on their own using the rope ladder.
Forest and fire department officials in Karnataka’s Davangere district mounted a four-day-long rescue operation to save over 50 monkeys that were stranded on trees for several days due to flooding in the Tungabhadra river.
Heavy rains forced officials to open the gates of dams, which resulted in flooding downstream with many animals left stranded. This particular troop of around 55 monkeys were stranded on trees near Rajanahalli in Harihar taluk of Davangere district and were surrounded by the overflowing river.
