Fight Fire With Fire

00078b.jpgThe New Delhi Train system has hired a monkey wrangler and his band of langur monkeys to drive the local monkey population out of stations and off of trains. Langur monkeys are similarly employed around the grounds of parliament and some government buildings in New Delhi. I suppose it works if they continue the program but an armed populace would be cheaper and have many other benefits. I suppose that is too much to hope for though.

    From the news stories I have read in the past couple of years regarding religious violence in India, it would seem that the populace is already well armed. Maybe they are afraid of offending the environmentalists by killing monkeys. Yeah, here at Yerkes we live in constant fear of a raucous protest by the greenies.
