In a shocking story from the U.K., a safari park is now being terrorized by a roving gang of Baboons armed with screwdrivers, knives and chainsaws.
It is believed the apes obtained the weapons from visiting pranksters, the apes have now turned the weapons on visitors to the park however, causing extensive automotive damage.
As Zerohedge reports:
Workers at a popular safari park are on edge after baboons were spotted wielding tools like knives, screwdrivers, and even a chainsaw. And to make matters worse, the primates are having a blast using the tools to terrorize visitors’ cars.
The baboons at Knowsley Safari Park in Merseyside, England, have long enjoyed the ignominious reputation of being extremely destructive mischief-makers who were previously infamous for nabbing objects from the cars of visitors, including side-view mirrors and windshield wipers.
However, some local workers worry that the creatures are possibly being given the weapons and power-tools “for a laugh” by equally mischievous park-goers, reports the Sunday Times.
“We’re not sure if they are being given weapons by some of the guests who want to see them attack cars, or if they’re fishing them out of pick-up trucks and vans,” one worker said.
