Have the monkeys figured out that humans are pushovers?
Posted by: Billy Hollis on Saturday, November 17, 2007

A few weeks back, I noted monkeys committing acts of sexual harassment against women in Kenya. Today I note that the monkeys are apparently forming a new criminal class in India, based on this headline:

Thieving monkeys 'out of control' in northeast India

The article goes on to say:
Troupes of monkeys are out of control in India's northeast, stealing mobile phones and breaking into homes to steal soft drinks from refrigerators, lawmakers in the region have complained.

"Monkeys are wreaking havoc in my constituency by taking away mobile phones, toothpastes, sipping coke after opening the refrigerators," Hiren Das told Assam state's assembly.
That sounds unfortunate, though I'll only really start worrying if the monkeys start using the mobile phones for text messaging.

I don't really have much else to say, except that "Thieving Monkeys" would be a good name for a rock band.
