A 50-day-old baby boy was severely injured after being bitten repeatedly and dragged by a monkey at a house in Kampung Manggis, Sungai Puyu, Butterworth on 9 January.

The incident occurred at 2pm when the baby’s mother placed her child down on a mattress in the living room area before heading into the kitchen for a moment to make some milk for the baby.

Moments later she heard her son crying loudly.

Her heart stopped when she discovered her baby on the cement floor covered in blood and a monkey standing by the front door.

According to Harian Metro,  Seberang Perai Utara District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the woman’s 27-year-old husband lodged a police report yesterday, 10 January.

“In his report, the woman’s husband said he had just returned home from the store and was shocked to see his son covered in blood with bite marks on his right cheek, the back of his head and his abdomen. His stomach was bitten until his intestines spilled out,” he said.

“He then rushed to take her son to Seberang Jaya Hospital (HSJ) for treatment before he was transferred to Penang Hospital (HPP),” he added.

The baby boy underwent minor surgery to repair the torn abdomen yesterday and now needs to receive further treatment at the children’s ward for two weeks before being allowed to leave.

Noorzainy said, they were informed that the baby was alone in the living room and only wore clothes and disposable diapers. His mother was in the kitchen and his father went to the store with his other child.

“The door of the house was locked and the window was not open, but it is believed that the monkey entered by shaking the door until the latch type lock opened,” he said.

Based on the investigation conducted, it was also found that this was the first attack wild monkeys have inflicted on humans that have left injuries. In previous cases, these creatures have only disturbed and made a mess in other villagers’ kitchens.

He said the report of the incident was referred to the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) for further action. The Seberang Perai City Council (MBSP) have since caught the animal.
