Go away! An angry resident at the Cape Town apartment block is trying to scare off the group of Chacma Baboons (Papio ursinus) to no avail - he can be seen here in the centre of the picture shaking his fist at the monkeys from one of his windows

We'll have that: Two baboons have managed to get hold of a teddy bear through an open window into a child's bedroom in the building


As the pictures here show, these are the scenes which regularly affect life in Cape Town, South Africa, where man and baboon share a sometimes uncomfortable existence.
Protected on the Cape Peninsula since 1999, there are now around 500 baboons living in 16 groups, increasingly cut off from their old, native habitats by the sprawling city.

Another resident has just lost their pink curtains. The monkeys ripped the fabric from the rails above this open window

One of the baboons found a nice blue blanket in somebody's apartment - the owner forgot to shut the window
