“Have you heard about the baboons on the loose?”
It’s the first question you’re likely to be asked around the watercooler today, as three of the primates did indeed take a walk on the wild side in Sydney on Tuesday.
One male and two female baboons escaped from a research facility on the grounds of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in the Sydney suburb of Camperdown, causing everyone including the local police force to monkey around making furiously bad jokes about it.
This is not a Mandrill! Earlier this afternoon, a troop of baboons escaped from a facility and were going bananas in Camperdown. Police and wildlife handlers now have the situation under control, so please let them do their job and don’t be tempted to pry, mates.
