The Overstrand Municipality does not have any constitutional authority to undertake the identification, entrapment and translocation of baboons which are frequent food raiders.  Nor have any such powers, functions or duties been assigned to the Municipality by an agreement in terms of section 156(4) of the Constitution.This is a functional area of concurrent national and provincial legislative competence, classified under "animal control."
