Viva la Evolucion!!!

My simian brethren are taking over:

“Wildlife officials are trying to find them. As police we’re not experts in dealing with monkeys. We can deal with mad bulls but monkeys are more difficult,” he said.
Along with an estimated 35,000 sacred cows and buffaloes that roam free in the capital, marauding monkeys have been longstanding pests.
They routinely scamper through government offices, courts and even police stations and hospitals as well as terrorise neighbourhoods.

They even took down the deputy mayor of Delhi!!!

He was on his balcony reading a newspaper when four monkeys appeared. As he waved a stick to scare them away, he tumbled over the edge, his family said.
In the latest incident in Delhi’s Shastri Park area, residents reported the monkeys appeared late Saturday and rampaged for hours.

Monkeys rampaging for hours! People are dying! IT’S A MADHOUSE!!!!!
I find this whole situation quite interesting. Not just for the unfortunate freak accidents. There’s an interesting public health problem here someplace. While they’re not your average vermin, monkeys carry all sorts of nasty diseases like Herpes B virus. Some of them, like the B virus, are quite fatal. And I doubt that there’s a system in place to track the outbreaks.
