Bud Alpha Male – Missing In Action Dec 2013

14 Dec, 2013: I’ve been following the wild baboon troop – not only have six males gone MIA or been shot since June, but I have yet to find all the pink faced infants that were in the troop a month ago. The new male who moved into the troop would had no competitive males to challenge him when killing the infants.. Shooting baboons has never solved the baboon/human problem; when a male baboon is shot, a new one moves into his position, often from outside the troop. Infanticide then occurs.
