End of the road for marauding Simla monkeys

Once they provided idle amusement to the officers of the British Raj, but today the monkeys of Simla have officially been classed as an urban menace.

After a spate of thefts and biting incidents in the former summer capital of British India, India's supreme court has ordered the offending animals to be rounded up and sent back to the forest.

It's about time the Indians enforced a little discipline. Everyone knows that if you give the simians an inch, they take a mile.
