A man has died after he was mauled to death by a monkey – while he was on the toilet.
Gutyappa Bin Rangappa, 66, was attacked by a rogue ape on Sunday (November 12) after he went to use the bog in his home in Arakere, a village in the Davangere district of Karnataka, India. Rangappa was reportedly bitten on the hand, causing him to bleed profusely and leaving a pool of blood.
The man's loved ones quickly rushed him to hospital for treatment, but he succumbed to his injuries on Monday (November 13). Authorities said the monkey who ravaged Rangappa has since been captured after terrorising the area for several days.

One official said the incident was a "rare case" and prompted a 30-person manhunt to bring the ape to justice. Prior to Rangappa's death another man, identified only as Prabhakar, was also assaulted by the same animal but survived the attack.
This isn't the only fatal monkey attack to have taken place in recent days. Previously, 10-year-old Dipak Thakor was disembowelled by a pack of aggressive apes while playing with friends in the village of Salki in Gujarat, India, the Daily Star previously reported.

The youngster was rushed to a local hospital but he was sadly pronounced dead before doctors could see him for treatment. An official said in a statement: "His intestine was ripped out in the attack. He rushed to his house and was taken to a hospital where doctors declared him dead on arrival."
The attack on Dipak was the third in his village over a week-long period. Officials have since captured several apes, but warned some are still at large.
