Bizarre news item from Nepal. 

Man mistakes son for monkey, shoots him dead - Yahoo! News

"Chitra Bahadur Pulami had been climbing a tree to chase away macaques that had become a nuisance to the family but his father Gupta Bahadur, 55, spotted the boy and opened fire, wrongly believing him to be one of the animals."

I don't know which species of monkey the farmer has been having trouble with. Nepal's gray langur, pictured above, can grow to five feet tall.
