MARSEILLE, France — Police were forced to tase an aggressive monkey this week after the animal reportedly “caused bedlam,” attacking students at an elementary school.

The monkey had apparently been living in the Castellanne neighborhood for some weeks, according to UPI. It had been living on scraps it found in the streets, as well as Kinder chocolates given to it by schoolchildren.

After multiple reports of disturbances, the primate allegedly scratched several children, prompting a police response. Officers believe the monkey may have become aggressive due to hunger and taunting by the students.

Eventually, officers found the monkey and subdued it with a Taser.  The animal, which was not seriously injured, was turned over to animal protection authorities and will join a zoo following a quarantine period, officials said.
