Baboons in a safari park were seen armed with knives, screwdrivers and CHAINSAWS as workers fear pranksters gave them weapons.
Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any crazier, there are now baboons on the loose with CHAINSAWS and KNIVES! Imagine going on vacation for a nice day at the safari and you see this. "Hey hunny, why does that baboon have a chainsaw and why is it walking this way?"
I guess the aliens will have to wait their turn as the baboons have taken over and we can only deal with so much madness at once.
These primates at Knowsley safari park, Merseyside, have long been known to stir up a little trouble. They are commonly jumping on cars and ripping off mirrors.
One park employee told 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."
Another worker claimed they witnessed baboons with knives and screwdrivers and assume the mammals are obtaining these weapons from visitors.
These baboon attacks are well known in the area and many people know what they are getting themselves into. You can expect high entertainment when you're in this park. One minute you're enjoying the scenery and the next you are missing your side mirrors!
Knowsley, which is home to animals including lions, tigers and rhinos, reopened on June 15 with Covid-19 security measure in place. The safari claims to be as safe as a McDonald's drive-through as long as visitors don't leave their car on the five mile drive. (Unless of course the ice cream machine is broke...then we might have some problems)!
The safari website includes reminding guests: “If you take a drive through our Baboon Jungle, we’re unable to return any car parts that our cheeky baboons may take” whilst pointing out that a “car friendly route” is available.
