Humans vs Apes…The War Begins!

I’ve been keeping my eye on the ape population my entire life, ever since I first saw Planet of the Apes in the mid 1970s on WABC-TV’s 4:30 Movie in New York City.

Well, the apes have finally made their big move, with the assassination of an Indian politician!

The BBC NEWS reports…

Monkeys kill Delhi deputy mayor

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

The High Court demanded the city find an answer to the problem last year.

Solution elusive

One approach has bajwa, a member of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), is survived by his wife and a son, according to the Press Trust of India news agency.

I say we go all Taylor on their primate rear ends and avert a Planet of the Apes!
