. . . to Catch a Monkey

Via Robert Farley it seems that S.S. Bajwa, Deputy Mayor of Delhi, has died as a result of injuries incurred during a monkey attack. It seems that "The city has long struggled to counter its plague of monkeys, which invade government complexes and temples, snatch food and scare passers-by." They do, however, have a potential solution: One approach has been to train bands of larger, more ferocious langur monkeys to go after the smaller groups of Rhesus macaques."
