Was in Storeton Woods yesterday and there was a notice saying a troop of Olive Baboons has been released there! Could not see any.

Keep looking, they are probably just hiding.

Sound like an April fool thing. But just in case stay clear as it will probably bite your head off:)

This was not an April fool at all! I was riding my bike through the woods around 7:00pm last night and come across these, they seemed friendly enough but i didn't hang around after taking a pic on my phone from a distance, just in case.

There were two notices. One was all about the baboons, habitat etc and another saying about the scheme to release them and they are harmless and electronically tagged to prevent escapes. Going back at the weekend will look again.

It said there was an alpha male and two beta males and females and young ones. I think a about a dozen in all. If they breed like the Knowsley safari park ones I expect there will be a lot more.

I would say the one on the left is the alpha. He looks big and mean. Weren't you scared being so close? I expect they could easily catch up with a bike on rough ground.

Lets hope they scare the dog walkers who go to the trouble to pick their dog mess up with black bags then throw them in the bushes.Cant understand that mentality.

Yes good point I can't understand that either. I know some people hang them in trees and then pick them up on the way back but a lot seem to get left in trees. The dog walkers I know are very responsible but there does seem to be more and more 'Christmas Decorations'.
