I heard about this on NPR the other morning and had to look into it. It's stranger than the Chupacabra stories from South America. The story has been around for a few years but it appears that attacks have been escalating in the past few weeks.

This struck me as funny. The whole region's in a panic, but apparently $1,100 is all they could come up with.
The per capita income in New Delhi is 53,976 Rupees. This converts to $1,159.88 USD. To someone living in India this is quite a bit of money. You have to remember that the pay scale in India is much less than other countries - hence the outsourcing trend.

Average Delhiite earns Rs 54K

I still think they should allow whomever captures the guy (he exists, right? ;)) to eBay him. That'll bring a lot more $$.

It seems like this is old news. The date from the article says May 21 2001

The attacks have started again which is why I said "The story has been around for a few years but it appears that attacks have been escalating in the past few weeks. "

Most people I know with money aren't overly big on contributing to "catch the monkey man" funds. :D They prefer growth funds! :eek: ;) :D
