Fight Against Maturity

Baboon Goons

WCAU | Philadelphia

A criminal gang being blamed for countless burglaries, thefts and vandalism in South Africa is made up entirely of baboons. Residents of Cape Peninsula said the gang is at least 350 baboons strong.

The reason there’s so many is that they are the country’s last colony of coastal baboons and are a protected species.

The creatures have learned to break into houses and to open car doors. Once inside a home, they generally head straight for the refrigerator where they take what they want and leave behind a big mess.

  6. This is incredible to see baboons learning how to open car doors and break into houses and head straight for the refrigerator. For someone studying the evolution from apes to man, this is a fascinating observation of the ability of baboons to learn and act like humans. I have noticed in videos of asian zoos and asian wild monkeys that the monkeys often sit and intensely observe the behavior of humans.
