Baboon Management Petition - Hermanus
Dear Overstrand Municipality,
We, the Voelklip residents are imploring you to please take proper responsibility for the monitoring, supervision and control of the baboon population within the confines of our suburb.
It has come to our attention that Voelklip is not the only affected suburb in Hermanus. Baboons are also marauding in Fernkloof, Hermanus Heights, Mossel River, the Hermanus Golf course and parts of Eastcliff as well as areas such as Onrus and Vermont. Thousands of Rand's of damage are being caused to homes and gardens, damages that are not covered by insurance companies in South Africa. The situation has become untenable and we are literally being held captive in our own homes. The baboons have become a lot more aggressive and destructive of late and people live in fear of their animals and even themselves getting attacked.
We therefor request that this matter receives your immediate attention.
