A half hour later the first baboon returned and attacked Goosen and his wife. Goosen shot the animal in self-defense and for the protection of his wife. At least that's Goosen's story. His neighbors have a different story. Their story involves Goosen chasing the baboon into an adjoining property before shooting it twice. Regardless of how it happened, Goosen was reprimanded by the authorities. Cape of Good Hope SPCA wildlife unit manager Brett Glasby said, "The owner has been charged by the police for discharging his firearm in a built-up area. I have also opened a docket for a charge of harming an animal, and he faces charges from nature conservation for harming a protected species and hunting without a license."
