The strange death of a dozen wild monkeys in India has been explained by officials with an equally weird cause: a tiger's roar.

The unfortunate creatures were found lying on the ground in a forest  last week and left area residents baffled by what could have caused  their sudden demise.

Although the initial theory for the event was that the animals were  poisoned, a postmortem examination of the monkeys produced some rather  eyebrow-raising results.

According to authorities, the monkeys appear to have all died from having a heart attack, seemingly at the same time.
