Cape Town: Feeding of baboons illegal anywhere in the Cape Peninsula

The Western Cape government gazetted an new regulation which is making it illegal to feed baboons in any private or public space. The previous law only made it illegal to feed baboons along roads.

Please keep that in mind when visiting the Cape Town and surroundings and please always make sure that you are not getting baboon-jacked. The baboons of the region have come under threat as urbanisation has reduced their natural habitat and brought them into conflict with humans.
