Facts about Monkey Man
Monkey Man Biography
The “Monkey Man” was an unknown creature which allegedly attacked several dozen people near Delhi, India in early 2001. Rumors about the attacker, described as part man and part monkey, led to public hysteria in some parts of the city, with at least two people killed while trying to flee the creature. The Internet turned local rumor into a global phenomenon, and soon the Monkey Man was world famous. But hard facts about the creature and the alleged attacks were hard to come by, and the hysteria gradually died away. Local investigators eventually decided that the Monkey Man, if it existed at all, was simply a human prankster in disguise.
