TODDANG PULU, Indonesia, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- A group of at least 10 monkeys attacked residents of Toddang Pulu, Indonesia, injuring seven people, one critically, officials said.

Witnesses said the monkeys emerged from the Toddang Lowa forest Monday, entering homes and causing panic.

Sidenreng Rappang regency spokesperson Ambo Ella told The Jakarta Post the monkeys were not forced out of their natural habitat by damage.

The spokesperson said the To Lotang indigenous people in the area still use the forest for rituals but did not indicate if that was the reason the monkeys left the forest to attack.
