Tom Felton - Planet Of The Apes Star Tom Felton Runs From Real-life Baboon Attack

Harry Potter star Tom Felton had a close call with a baboon on Wednesday (07Dec11) after he was almost attacked while sitting on his hotel balcony in South Africa.
The British actor, who ironically played a bitter ape warden in 2011 movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is on location shooting new movie Labyrinth and he decided to make the most of a day off by taking a safari trip.
But he got a little too close to the local wildlife upon returning to his hotel suite, when a baboon decided to join him.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com, he writes, "went on safari today, had an amazing time observing the animals of africa... also nearly got ravaged to death by a baboon who jumped from my roof to the balcony whilst i was reading a script outside! (I) legged it (ran) inside."
