There will be 100,000 human security personnel deployed during the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Dehli - as well as 38 monkey security guards.
The multi-sport games between the nations of the old British Empire begin Sunday in New Dehli, India - which, apparently, has a bit of a wild monkey problem. In fact, a Deputy Mayor was killed during a monkey attack in 2007. So security officials have hired 38 Langurs (above) - apparently the schoolyard bullies of the monkey community - to scare away the wild hoards of smaller monkeys during the Games.
They SHOULD have hired Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp ...
