Even a group of monkeys died of a heat stroke. High temperatures, which lasted more than a week.

Intense temperatures spread across vast areas of the country, to more than 50 degrees Celsius in Rajasthan state.

Monkeys died in the Joshi Baba forest in Madhya Pradesh state, where the temperature was 46 degrees Celsius.

“It is believed that these animals fought a battle to obtain a source of water, and this is rare and strange because herbivores do not indulge in such conflicts,” said BN Mishra, a region’s forest official.

“We are looking at all possibilities, including the possibility of conflict between monkeys for water, killing 15 monkeys from a group of monkeys between 30 and 35 living in caves,” the autopsy said.
