The much-loved baboon Kataza may soon be moved to a new home after failing to integrate with his original Slangkop troop in Kommetjie on the Cape Peninsula.
Kataza has been wondering around the area since he was brought back from nearby Tokai last year.
The City of Cape Town is awaiting the
outcome of an application to Cape Nature to have the male baboon relocated to Limpopo.
Cape of Good Hope SPCA Manager Jaco Pieterse says he has put in an application for Kataza to be moved
to a rehabilitation centre in Limpopo.
Pieterse says, "The reason for the application is that Kataza is not integrating with his natal troop or any other of the baboon troops in his surroundings.
We believe that his welfare is being compromised and the best solution for him is to go to a rehabilitation centre where he would be rehabilitated and released back into the wild."
