More on deterring visiting baboons
WHEN BABOONS ARE RAIDING YOUR HOME: The first question to ask yourself when you feel that your wild neighbors are crossing boundaries, entering your property or home and taking what you feel should belong to you, is “what is attracting these baboons here?” Once you have discovered whether it is an exotic fruit tree, your compost heap, black garbage bag or the fruit bowl left on your kitchen table, you then have the choice to remove the attraction. The answer to avoid having your property raided by baboons is really as simple as that. The choice only becomes complicated when residents feel that practicing tolerance and erecting baboon proof deterrents is an inconvenience. However, those of us who do this are offered the privilege of living with these wild primates in a harmonious way.

Mizaru covers his eyes, and sees no evil, Kikazaru covers his ears, and hears no evil while Iwazaru covers his mouths and utters not a word of evil.Together, these three monkeys embodies the proverbial principle of “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”
The source that popularized these three is a 17th century carving over a door of the famous Tosho-gu shrine in Nikko, Japan. But the philosophy however, propably came to Japan with a Tendai Buddhist legend, from China in the 8th century.
