Visitors to the Knowsley Safari Park near Liverpool, England say this is what could happen to your car, if you enter the park with a rooftop luggage carrier. The baboons have learned how to open them.

Staff say the largest one jumps on the box until the lock bursts and the others loot what's inside.

As many as 140 baboons live in the area.

As the park manager puts it, "no one wants to see a baboon running up a tree with their underwear."
