My Happy Baboon Burglar Made Me Laugh!
A Chacma baboon near Cape Point, South Africa
Ever enjoyed some happy laughter just after a surprising or intimidating experience? Here's what happened to me. The bedroom door handle just turned, and into the lounge walks the biggest baboon you can imagine!
I opened the sliding door to give him an exit access, but he was not interested. Instead, off to the kitchen he goes, jumps up on the counter, reaches up to the shelves for a see-through plastic cereal container, then pushes open the kitchen window and makes his exit with my muesli!
My explaining to him noisily that he should @$%! off immediately just fell on deaf ears. These buggers are now visiting the neighbourhood twice a week! On Monday they trashed all the refuse bins in the street ahead of the garbage collectors. (LOL ... still laughing here at what just happened.)
Last week my neighbour was attending to someone downstairs when a baboon entered upstairs and grabbed his muesli from his kitchen too! The other neighbour has just told me Mr B trashed his daughter's rice and stuff all over the floor, and opened the fridge and trashed the contents from there too!
