    Tezpur (Assam, INDIA): An army of angry monkeys Monday surrounded a baby monkey hit by a car on a busy road in Assam, India, bringing traffic to a dead halt, witnesses said.

    The incident happened in the garrison town of Tezpur in northern Assam, some 180 kilometers (111 miles) from the state capital Guwahati.

    "A baby monkey which strayed into the town was hit by a car while trying to cross the road. Its hind legs were crushed and it lay listless on the road," Rajib Saikia, a government information officer, told AFP. "In no time, more than a 100 monkeys descended on the street from all directions and blocked off traffic," added Saikia.

    Abhinab Goswami, a local shopkeeper in Tezpur said the angry monkeys did not allow vehicles to run on the busy street for over an hour.

    "All the while the monkeys monitored the condition of the injured baby. It was very emotional ... some of them massaged its legs. Finally, they left the scene carrying the injured baby with them," said Goswami.

    It was unclear whether the baby was dead or alive as the adult monkeys did not let anyone near it.

    Another solid proof that animals are more caring than humans. If it happened to our fellow man, we would go beat him up even more for coming in the car's way. We really dont desereve our title.

    You see things, and you say 'Why?' But I dream things that never were and I say 'Why not?'
