SOUTH AFRICA - Baboon Fred sits inside a car eating a piece of fruit on the outskirts of Cape Town after breaking inside the car.
Visitors heading to South Africa for the 2010 World Cup are worried about the high crime rate, but are more likely to be robbed or mugged by a baboon. The baboons have learned how to open car doors and jump through windows in their pursuit of food. WARNING! Keep your car doors locked and don't feed the baboons.
City officials are in a flux as to how to control the aggressive primates, especially with the World Cup happening next year.
It was reported on Tuesday, 29 baboons raided cars outide a small coastal neighborhood. Fred, the baboon in the photo, is thought to be the leader of the group.
Mark Duffels, a volunteer who carefully watches the baboons said, "We spend the whole day basically rescuing tourists."
Baboons are a protected species under South African legislation, but their ways of obtaining food has led to conflict with residents and tourists.
People are strongly discouraged from feeding the baboons and are being told to keep their car doors locked.
