The City of Cape Town can confirm that the adult male baboon referred to as Kataza, is being monitored after a fight with another male baboon from Tokai. The SPCA did an assessment at the weekend and no intervention is needed at this point in time. Kataza who was recently relocated from Kommetjie to Tokai, is a young male. Fighting between male baboons often occurs. Kataza still bears a scar on his face from a fight he had with another male baboon while he was with the Slangkop Troop in Kommetjie. This is normal behaviour as baboons are wild animals and not domesticated pets
