Monkey Mischief: Bad Baboons Burgle Bloomers
If you plan to visit the Knowsley Safari Park near Liverpool, England, beware of monkeys. Bad, bad monkeys:
The cheeky monkeys – who are known for tearing off the odd wiper or wing mirror – have been targeting cars carrying the roof boxes before pouncing on the unsuspecting visitors, who are forced to watch helplessly as their things disappear. [...]
‘Their technique involves the largest baboons jumping up and down on the box, flexing it until the lock bursts open, then the rest of the baboons pile in to see what they can find,’ Mr Ross said.
‘Obviously, we’re well used to them helping themselves to the odd wing mirror or wiper blade, but this has taken things to a whole new level.
‘Let’s face it, nobody wants to see a baboon running up a tree with their underwear.’
