Baboon on the way to vasectomy escapes with two girlfriends

A baboon scheduled to undergo a vasectomy in Australia made a run for freedom Tuesday together with his “two wives”, leaving the trio running amok on the streets of the country’s biggest city.

Animal wranglers and police were called after the trio escaped from a truck on the way to a Sydney hospital during the evening rush hour and as bemused locals looked on in the western suburb.

The state’s health minister Brad Hazzard told local media that one amongst the primates had been getting ready to get the snip and also the other two were there to “keep him calm”.

“The two girls came as, effectively, his wives to help and keep him company while he had his vasectomy,” Hazzard told The Daily Telegraph.

Videos on social media showed the three wandering past parked cars as passers-by watched in disbelief.

“I’m six floors up and was just having a gaze out at the parking lot … and there were about three baboons,” one caller to local station 2GB said.

“I’m very serious. They even had shiny red bottoms.”

A spokeswoman for South Wales Police advised people to avoid the zone but said there had been no immediate danger to the general public.

The runaways were eventually recaptured.
