About "Feasting at Kommetjie"
The Chacma Baboon is widespread and does not rank among threatened animal species. However, in some confined locations such as South Africa's Southern Cape Peninsula, local populations are dwindling due to habitat loss. Some troops have become a suburban menace, overturning trash cans and entering houses in their search for food.
i was inspired when I saw a troop of about 40 in Kommetjie. They were playfully swinging from house to house from tree o tree and balcony to balconey stealing fruit from the houses to the owners knowlege or ignorance to the baboons on their windowsils eating what could be have been their Sunday lunch.
It was a wonderful sight for me but quite frightening for the residents.
Had to capture it to show you the cheek of it.
