叶猴当上印度地铁治安员

  NEW DELHI - NEW DELHI, India - They say it takes a thief to catch a thief, but India’s Delhi Metro has hired a monkey to frighten off other monkeys from boarding trains and upsetting passengers.

  常言道,“以其人之道还制其人之身”,印度新德里地铁公司就雇佣来一只猴子吓唬其它登上地铁骚扰乘客的猴子。

  In an effort to keep monkeys out of the New Delhi subways, authorities have called in one of the few animals known to scare the creatures — a fierce-looking primate called the langur, the Hindustan Times newspaper reported Wednesday.

  《印度斯坦时报》8月2日报道说,为了赶走新德里地铁里活动猖獗的猴子,印度有关部门已经请来一只让普通猴子害怕的、长相凶猛的叶猴来“以猴制猴”。

  The decision to hire a langurwallah — a man who trains and controls the langurs — came after a monkey got into a metro car in June, the newspaper reported.

  报道说,当6月发生了一起猴子闯入地铁车厢骚扰乘客事件后,一名叶猴训练者带着他的叶猴开始受雇于新德里地铁公司。

  The langur handler is being paid a retainer of India rupees 6,900 ($160) a month, and "he will be called whenever there is a monkey problem," Anuj Dayal, the spokesman for the Delhi Metro Rail Corp., was quoted as saying.

  这名叶猴训练者每月将获得6900卢比
