At Boing Boing I came across this article: India Plans Reform School for Monkeys

The BBC reported the following:

Officials say monkeys are a growing menace in Punjab as the animals move into towns and cities looking for food.

The state government has asked India’s Central Zoo Authority for funds to build the country’s first monkey rescue and rehabilitation centre.

The problems these monkeys are causing is the stuff nightmares are made of.

Many of the animals now live in towns and villages and it is not uncommon for them to attack humans as they forage for food…Officials accuse them of a variety of bad behaviour from terrorising children, snatching food from people and destroying property.

I, for one, have suspected for a long time that monkeys are inherently evil.  I realize some people find them cute.  Yet I ask, how can one find a creature that flings its excrement at you at the zoo adorable?  It defies logic.  Monkeys make loud, scary noises and faces (again, witness this at the zoo) and can be quite violent, as this story about India demonstrates. 

So I say, good for India for recognizing the devious inner workings of this cousin of ours.  However, if this reform school for the rogue monkeys fails, I, for one, am all in favor of simply shooting the damn things.
