The monkey, who is now 6 years old was eventually caught by animal trappers three years ago and brought to Kanpur Zoo. There, he remained hostile towards zookeepers as well as other monkeys even after all these years. Mohd Nasir, a zoo doctor at the Kanpur Zoo commented,

“We kept him in isolation for some months and then shifted him to a separate cage. There has been no change in his behavior 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.”

Zoologists who worked with Kalua noted that not only is the monkey addicted to alcohol, but he also refused to eat vegetables and other normal monkey food. They believe that Kalua’s rage may have been a result of cannibalistic regimen that his dead owner prescribed to him, whereby he was fed with monkey meat.
