Egg-Stealing Baboon Incurs Wrath Of Geese | National Geographic - National Geographic


Watch a hungry baboon fight off two geese to raid their nest for eggs in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Egyptian geese are aggressively territorial, and baboons are notoriously intelligent troublemakers—when the two meet a furious struggle ensues. Eventually the baboon is victorious, feasting on the eggs as the geese retreat. Baboons cause mayhem for humans as well; South Africa enacted a law in 2000 making it illegal to feed the scheming monkeys. They have been known to raid restaurants and homes, and there have even been reports of people mugged while carrying food.?
