Ants Test Nonviolence of Buddhist Monks

Quote:

Buddhist monks, who are bound by faith to nonviolence, are grappling with how to rid a temple of a severe ant infestation without killing the insects.

Stinging red ants have plagued the Hong Hock See Temple in northern Penang state for a year, causing one worshipper to be bitten so badly last month that he had to receive hospital treatment, said Elma Lin, a temple volunteer worker.

A temple disciple tried using a vacuum cleaner to gather up the ants before freeing them in a nearby forest, but the method failed to purge the insects, Lin said.

Did they not think that sucking the little fs up in a vacuum might kill them.

There is not other thing for it. The monks will have to move.

Either that or use a little "plausible deniability" Worked for Reagan.
