RIP Fred the Baboon squad leader

Fred was known as a ringleader of baboons in a tourist area of Cape Town, South Africa and was infamous for his ability to open closed car doors. He was euthanized because of his aggressive tactics.

More than 400 baboons roam Cape Town's outskirts, particularly the popular scenic sites along the coast. They are a protected species but have a number of run-ins with humans.
