Monkey strangled by football net in Saudi
Tragedy struck a group of monkeys after one of them was strangled to death when its neck was caught by the goal net in a football field in Saudi Arabia.
The incident occurred on a play field in southwest Saudi Arabia, where scores of monkeys took advantage of the absence of human players to play football.
'Sada' newspaper said the monkeys had often come to the field from nearby hills when there are no footballers and quoted residents as saying they saw them many times running and jumping inside the field but without a ball.
“It appears that this time they found a ball and tried to play with it. One monkey was later found dead inside the goal after its neck was caught by the net,” the paper said, adding that a picture of the dead monkey was published on social media.
