HERE’S someone who definitely didn’t need to be baboon fed.

The 100lb monkey ambled up to a posh restaurant, hopped on to a chair and tucked into a bowl of pasta.

After finishing off the spaghetti bolognese, the 3ft-tall Cape baboon moved to a second table and wolfed down another plateful before wandering off near Cape Town, South Africa.

Tanya May, 50, said: “It was as if he had booked for lunch.

“He was perfectly well behaved and although he was eating with his paws did not cause any damage at all.


“When he finished his first spaghetti dish he moved to a second table but the diner picked up her bottle of wine and said the baboon could have her meal but not her vino!
“He ate her pasta and then had a pick at her husband’s burger then ate her garlic bread.

“The staff had no idea how to move the baboon on but promised the diners they would replace their meals when he was gone.”

The scenes unfolded at Groot Constantia, South Africa’s oldest wine producing vineyard, making the good stuff since 1685.

Visitors mused that the baboon could be mistaken for a human diner

The vineyard has spent £50,000 on a special fence to keep the baboons out and has a team of staff who try to keep hungry primates out.

A bewildered Tanya added: “The thing that made it so nuts was that he really looked so human tucking into his lunch.

“The only thing he forgot to do was pay for his meal and give the waitress a tip!”
