Baboon grabs woman by the hair at zoo in Georgia


SUKHUMI, Georgia, April 14 (UPI) — A woman marveling at the monkeys at an eastern European zoo got too close to the cage and was grabbed by the hair by a curious baboon.

A video posted to YouTube by Alexia Phelps shows what happened when a visitor to the monkey nursery in Sukhumi, Georgia, got too close to the cage.

The woman leans in for a closer look at the monkeys and a baboon in the cage reaches out and grabs her by the hair.

The woman screams as fellow visitors come to her rescue and free her hair from the primate’s clutches.

Phelps wrote that the video shows “what can happen” if visitors “come close to the cage with the monkeys.”
