City monitoring SK11, male baboon colloquially known as Kataza<p>​</p><p>The City of Cape Town met with the Cape of Good Hope SPCA on Tuesday, 5 January 2021, about SK11 – the male chacma baboon colloquially known as Kataza. </p><p>The discussion concerned SK11’s raiding behaviour and alternative solutions, seeing that he has failed to integrate with his natal Slangkop troop in the Kommetjie area since his return on 12 November 2020.</p><p>SK11 is being monitored. During the past two days he has moved from Capri to Da Gama, and has on occasion tried to cross Ou Kaapse Weg in the direction of Tokai. Should he reach Tokai on his own accord by Monday, 11 January 2021, SK11 will be afforded the opportunity to integrate and his raiding behaviour will be monitored. </p><p>In the event that SK11 does not reach Tokai by 11 January 2021, further intervention will be required. An application to CapeNature, as the mandated authority in terms of the Nature Conservation Ordinance, will be initiated by the Cape of Good Hope SPCA, for a permit to have SK11 translocated to a rehabilitation centre in the Limpopo Province.</p><p>We will keep the public informed.</p><p>Residents are encouraged to please phone the Baboon Hotline number 071588 6540 for assistance.</p><p>The City wants to thank all role-players, interested parties, and residents for their ongoing support over the past few months.</p><p>End<br></p>2021-01-06T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891d10
