Because this is why you should never taunt a caged animal.
What if you were stuck in a cage with annoying kids pointing, laughing and straight up taunting you all day every day. How would you react? Probably like this baboon, which makes sense because they share 91% of their DNA with humans.
In the video posted this summer from North Carolina, a couple of girls are filmed approaching a baboon cage. They proceed to wave their arms and taunt as the monkey stares at them.
It doesn’t take long for the baboon to lose it and jump around — something you might’ve experienced at the zoo if you’ve ever seen a caged baboon. (Side story: I went on a field trip to the zoo when I was a kid and I distinctly remember a baboon rattling the cage with a massive hard on at one of the girls in my class. Anyways, moving on). Then, the baboon turns around, grabs a fistful of either his own sh*t or some feces from his primate buddies, then chucks it through the fence at the girls. The baboon must have been practising for the big moment or gotten super lucky as he hits one of the girls square in the chin.
The girls walk away and unsurprisingly say: “I hate this place.”
The video ends with “Where’s a napkin. We need a napkin.”
