Baboons in the Safari Park can be seen armed with knives, screwdrivers and even a chainsaw: the keepers suspect that jokes are responsible for handing over animal weapons so that they damage the visitors' cars to make them laugh
- Baboons in the Merseydie Safari Park were seen "armed" with weapons
- They are notorious for tearing off wing mirrors and wipers
- Park workers believe that some guests may have provided weapons for the animals
Zookeepers at a Merseyside safari park believe that some visitors “arm” baboons with tools such as knives, screwdrivers, and a chainsaw to ravage parked cars.
The baboons in Knowsley Safari Park are known to tear off wipers and wing mirrors from visitors' cars.
But now zookeepers are claiming that some visitors are trying to increase the damage done to animals by providing weapons "to laugh", the Sunday Times reports.

A mechanic in Sale knows the monkeys too well and told the newspaper: “This year I had two customers who fell victim to these baboons.
"The kids start chirping and saying they want monkeys all over the car, and then go home unmarked."
A park worker, however, was confused by the sightings of the baboons with guns, wondering whether the tools had been given to the animals or whether they had simply taken them out of people's tool boxes when they stopped in their enclosure.
Another worker said: “The baboons were found with knives and screwdrivers. I wonder if there are some guests who are handing them out. & # 39;
The 550-hectare park reopened on June 15 after the government gave the green light
Knowsley Safari Park claimed that its park, where guests don't park their vehicles, was as safe as a McDonalds passage
Despite the suggestions of where the baboons were given the weapons, the park believes that stories about arming their animals were nothing more than an urban myth.
The Safari Park reopened on June 15 after the government gave the go-ahead for attractions such as zoos and aquariums to welcome visitors after the corona virus was closed.
The 550-acre park argued that the park was as safe as a McDonald’s drive-through, as guests don’t park their cars during the safari.
