Baboons at a popular safari park have been spotted with knives, screwdrivers and even a chainsaw, according to reports.

The primates at Knowsley Safari Park in Merseyside are already known for their destructive abilities and have been pictured previously pulling things from visitors’ cars.

But now, some staff are concerned that the baboons are being given weapons “for a laugh” by park-goers, according to the Sunday Times.

One worker told the newspaper: “We’re not sure if they are being given weapons by some of the guests who want to see them attack cars, or if they’re fishing them out of pick-up trucks and vans.”

The worker said the animals sometimes go into people’s toolboxes to grab what they can, adding: “One of the baboons was seen lugging around a chainsaw.”
