Monkey Attack!

Filed under: Monkey Problem, New Dehli, Not Politics — t4toby @ 10:34 am

Looks like things are going awry in New Dehli:

…weeks after the Indian capital’s deputy mayor toppled to his death fighting off a pack of monkeys…

Wait. What?

…the animals are back on the attack, sparking fresh concerns about the simian menace.

This is the capital of India, a country with more that 1.1 billion people.

Along with an estimated 35,000 sacred cows and buffaloes that roam free in the capital, marauding monkeys have been longstanding pests.

Now that is some wacky crap right there.
So there shouldn’t be any problems with animals roaming free in a city of well over 15 million, right?

Trouble boiled over in late October when the city’s deputy mayor, Sawinder Singh Bajwa, 52, fell to his death driving away monkeys from his home.

He was on his balcony reading a newspaper when four monkeys appeared, his family said. As he waved a stick to scare them away, he tumbled over the edge and died in hospital from head injuries.

So I guess its up to the cops to take care of this mess?

As police we’re not experts in dealing with monkeys. We can deal with mad bulls but monkeys are more difficult

Wrong again!

So evidently, this:

Is easier to handle than this:

So?

We’re trying to catch them but the difficulties are a shortage of monkey catchers…

I guess they used their budget up on bull wranglers.
