No more 'Monkey Business' in Delhi. Monkeys kill Delhi Deputy Mayor

Now here is something you don't hear everyday. Now here is something you don't hear everyday. Wild hordes of "killer monkeys" have taken over Delhi. On Sunday, those monkeys went wacko and attacked and killed the deputy mayor at his home. Delhi has "long struggled to counter its plague of monkeys"..their answer..get bigger more ferocious monkeys. Not a good idea. According to BBC News,
The deputy mayor of the Indian capital Delhi died on Sunday after being attacked by a horde of wild monkeys.

SS Bajwa suffered serious head injuries when he fell from the first-floor terrace of his home on Saturday morning trying to fight off the monkeys.

The city has long struggled to counter its plague of monkeys, which invade government complexes and temples, snatch food and scare passers-by.

The High Court demanded the city find an answer to the problem last year. BBC
WOW...the monkeys have taken over the city...How do they plan to rid the cities of their wild hordes of "killer" monkeys...
One approach has been to train bands of larger, more ferocious langur monkeys to go after the smaller groups of Rhesus macaques.
Culling is seen as unacceptable to devout Hindus, who revere the monkeys as a manifestation of the monkey god Hanuman, and often feed them bananas and peanuts.

Urban development around the city has also been blamed for destroying the monkeys' natural habitat. BBC
My goodness...India has sought "lawless cowboy monkeys" for protection ...we have them, too... Blackwater USA.
