LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- No monkeying around while on the job, unless you're a monkey chaser.

There are so many monkeys in parts of New Dehli that the city has now hired monkey chasers to keep them from stealing food and biting people.

It's illegal to kill the animals, so they have to use their voices and a slingshot to try to keep the monkeys away.

But so far, it appears the monkeys are winning.
