Family finds baboon burglars trashing Airbnb rental in South Africa

By Ben Hooper

June 6 (UPI) -- A man visiting Cape Town, South Africa with his family was shocked to walk out of the bedroom of his Airbnb and discover a group of baboons trashing the home.

Neil Cave said in a Facebook post he walked out of the bedroom of the luxury apartment where he was staying with his family last month and discovered seven baboons had entered the home through the ajar patio door.

The baboons trashed the house, defecated everywhere and raided the kitchen for food.

"These things knew how to open doors, fridges, cupboards, jars .. everything," Cave wrote.

Cave said the baboons were eventually driven away by three police officers armed with "mace and experience," leaving him with the approximately $70 clean-up bill.

He said the baboon troubles didn't end with their forced eviction.

"Today my son left his bubble soap outside," he wrote in a comment two days after the primate invasion. "The baboons drank it. Now they're on the roof burping bubbles... classic."
