A sex-crazed male monkey has caused an uproar in a central Sri Lankan town, stalking and attacking girls in public

and flirting outrageously with cats and dogs, a newspaper said.

The monkey has roused the anger of residents of Kundasale by following young women around the town, jumping

on them without warning and clinging tenaciously until it was chased away with sticks and stones, the Daily News


Apparently having little success with human females, the primate also makes advances on other animals to which

it has "a very strong affinity (particularly) cats and dogs of the opposite sex", the newspaper said, adding the creature

fed its libido by stealing chocolates from local shops.

affection are frowned upon even between humans of the opposite sex.
