The yet to be named baby suffered injury to the head, ear, neck and face caused by scratches and bites during the attack, which occurred on October 6th at at the family's residence in Seremban, a town south-east of the Malaysia capital.
The mother, 26-year-old V. Revathy, discovered the child missing and after a search found her body outside the house with serious bite and scratch wounds.
State wildlife and national parks director Ishak Muhamad said the monkey responsible was located and shot dead shortly after the incident:
"We suspect the macaque was rummaging for food inside the house. It could have taken the baby to the roof thinking the newborn was food," he told the daily.
