In total, about 100 simians were killed, although hundreds of licenses were issued to the farmers.

 

The Himachal Pradesh government has backed a farmer outfit's plan to shoot monkeys and other animals on sight in order to prevent damage to crops. Kheti Bachao Sangarsh Samiti (KBSS) encouraged the farmers to apply to conservators of forests and divisional forest officers for permits allowing the mass shooting of monkeys, but also wild boars and blue bulls. Their goal was to secure 10,000 permits by December 9. "Operation Monkey" started on Dec. 10 and will end on Dec. 23, so there is still time to prevent more shootings.
