What should we do about our monkey problem? Bring in more monkeys!

The Commonwealth Games in India have been a disaster. Crumbling bridges, overflowing toilets, wild dogs, and massive snakes showing up in the athletes quarters. Also: small monkeys all over the place. Now a plan is in place to scare away the small monkeys: BIGGER MONKEYS. Game "organizers" have 38 langur monkeys on leashes to scare away the smaller monkeys. There's also an order to shoot any wild dogs on site and they've brought in snake charmers for the snakes. Also, there seem to be cows roaming all over the place but they're sacred so everyone just has to put up with the cows. Commonwealth Games Fever: Catch It!
