A veterinarian places a monkey on the table for sterilisation inside an operation theatre at a monkey rescue centre run by forest and wildlife department Tutikandi in Shimla.

The Himachal Pradesh state government is offering a reward of Rs 500 for every monkey caught by a member of the public in an effort to control their numbers.

Monkeys are increasingly seen as a nuisance in places like the capital Shimla, where they harass people and other animals on the roads and rifle through garbage bins looking for food. Monkeys caught are taken to one of four sterilisation centres, where they are neutered before being released back into the same area they were trapped in.

There were at least 317,000 monkeys in Himachal Pradesh according to the most recent survey of the primates, which was conducted in 2004-05.

A man shouts from a tree as police walk through St James park after they moved in to evict protesters during the Occupy Toronto movement in Toronto.

Backed by a court order, police arrived at the downtown park at dawn and began removing unoccupied tents and garbage, while some protesters screamed at them, some sang and played guitar, and others dug in for an expected stand-off and forcible removal.

Protesters first set up shop in Toronto's St James Park in mid-October, following the lead of Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York's Zuccotti Park.

Inhabitants of Faroe Islands catch and slaughter pilot whales (Globicephala melaena) during the traditional 'Grindadrap' (whale hunting in Faroese) near the capital Torshavn.

Residents of the Faroe Islands, an autonomous province of Denmark, slaughter and eat pilot whales every year. The Faroese are descendents of Vikings, and pilot whales have been a central part of their diet for more than 1,000 years.

They crowd the animals into a bay and kill them. 'Grindadrap' whaling is not done for commercial purposes, the meat can not be sold and is divided evenly between members of the local community.
