Globalization's next step ?

Perhaps the solution to this 'monkey menace' is actually a part of the long range strategic plans of Western corporations.

As salaries rise overseas to meet the demand for 'skilled workers' , eventually less developed countries may be able to employ their underutilized wild animal 'resources', who are currently congregating around public places with nothing to do except panhandle and annoy hard-working citizens.

This can be done by either :

1) Placing a thousand monkeys at a thousand terminals ... eventually one will answer a help-line query correctly.


2) Making the work so easy that even a monkey could do it .

And payment in bananas and peanuts , with no need for any benefits!

Report: Man dies in monkey attack
Story Highlights
New Delhi deputy mayor reportedly dies from balcony fall after monkey attack
Many buildings in New Delhi are overrun by Rhesus macaques
City has been reprimanded by courts for not stopping monkey attacks
Many Hindus believe monkeys are manifestations of monkey god Hanuman
NEW DELHI, India (AP) -- Wild monkeys attacked a senior government official who then fell from a balcony at his home and died Sunday, media reported.
New Delhi Deputy Mayor S.S. Bajwa was rushed to a hospital after the attack by a gang of Rhesus macaques, but succumbed to head injuries sustained in his fall, the Press Trust of India news agency and The Times of India reported.
Many government buildings, temples and residential neighborhoods in New Delhi are overrun by Rhesus macaques, which scare passers-by and occasionally bite or snatch food from unsuspecting visitors.
Last year, the Delhi High Court reprimanded city authorities for failing to stop the animals from terrifying residents and asked them to find a permanent solution to the monkey menace.
Part of the problem is that devout Hindus believe monkeys are manifestations of the monkey god Hanuman and feed them bananas and peanuts -- encouraging them to frequent public places.
Over the years, city authorities have employed monkey catchers who use langurs -- a larger and fiercer kind of monkey -- to scare or catch the macaques, but the problem persists.
