Monkey See, Monkey Do Really Well on SAT Exam: India's School for Monkeys

Wildlife officials in India plan to build a special school to improve the behaviour of delinquent monkeys.

They say the aim is to target monkeys that pose a serious threat to people in the state of Punjab.

Officials say monkeys are a growing menace in Punjab as the animals move into towns and cities looking for food.

The state government has asked India's Central Zoo Authority for funds to build the country's first monkey rescue and rehabilitation centre.

Punjab has more than 65,000 wild monkeys.

As more and more forests disappear, they are increasingly encroaching into human settlements, say experts.
