  Heh, I wonder if we could do this iin South Central or Compton?
Scotsman.com News - International - Wild lions to be released to tackle kidnap gangs: "ONE Indian region is striking back against the bandits that have brought fear to the area by sending in wild lions to flush out the gangs from its forested ravines.

The Chambal region, which covers the states of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh - has long been controlled by the gangs, known as 'dacoits'.

With its maze of undulating ravines and dense forests, the Chambal Valley has provided perfect cover for the hideouts of numerous dacoit gangs for decades. The dacoits, who mostly abduct people for ransom, have been blamed for more than 4,000 kidnappings and 180 murders in the last five years.

Now the government in the state of Uttar Pradesh has decided to strike back at the gangs by releasing 25 wild lions. The animals will be taken from a national park in Gujarat and released in the forests of Etawah."
