BBC News: Monkeys kill Delhi deputy mayor

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.

But this is my favorite part:

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

One approach has been to train bands of larger, more ferocious langur monkeys to go after the smaller groups of Rhesus macaques.

Oh, yea. No way that might backfire.
