PINE MOUNTAIN, Ga., March 24 (UPI) -- A camera-shy baboon at a Georgia zoo lured a man filming close to his cage so he could reach through the bars and slap the GoPro out of his hand.

The video, filmed at the Wild Animal Safari park in Pine Mountain, shows the paparazzi-hating baboon repeatedly walk away from the camera before jumping against the bars of his cage in front of the person filming.

The baboon then moons the camera with his red backside before trying the gentler approach of reaching through the bars toward the filmer.

The man filming steps in closer, allowing the baboon to slap the camera out of his hand.
