The Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) have installed baboon cutouts at a covid care centre in Chhatarpur to combat the monkey issue. The preparations were put in place at the Sardar Patel Covid Care Centre, which is near, Radha Soami Beas, Chhatarpur, New Delhi.
The monkeys have been spreading havoc in the centre from the past few days. They were angry and even attempted to attack the staff assigned to guard the centre, notably those wearing PPE gear. As a result of this havoc created by these monkeys, this step has been applied across the centre and its surroundings.
The baboon cutouts are placed in various locations throughout the covid care centre, and their placement is randomly changed on a regular basis, so the monkeys don't realize they aren't genuine.
According to the police, this technique has been proven quite effective as of now. Since these cutouts have been installed, monkeys have avoided approaching the area. It is a quite innovative idea to tackle such a problem.
