Added On August 8, 2017

A rare wild monkey has recently become a trouble-maker in southwest China's Yunnan Province.

It attacked a villager, pigs and stole fruits.

The monkey is a Class I protected wild animal in China.

It attacked a villager in Gongshan Dulong and Nu Autonomous County on Thursday, biting her thighs and ears. She later had stitches and rabies vaccination.

Another villager said he saw the monkey stealing pig fodder and peaches. It also bit five pigs.

Police used a tranquilizer to catch the monkey when it came back to the village for food on Saturday.

The wild animal has been sent to a nature reserve for treatment and observation. It is in stable condition.
