Baboon "Gangs" Run Wild in Suburban South Africa

From National Geographic online: Baboon "Gangs" Run Wild in Suburban South Africa

When we were in the national parks, there were warning signs all over the place, telling us not to feed the baboons, that they're attracted by food and can get very aggressive, that there's a big fine if you're caught feeding the baboons... OK. No problem. We get it. A lot of people don't, and that's how things go very wrong. I've heard that the baboons can be a big problem in the parks - climbing into open car windows, attacking people having picnics, etc. I didn't realize the "baboon problem" extended so far...

Oh, no pictures of baboons or "no feeding" signs or anything else up yet, but we're working on it ;-)
