Maybe the baboon didn't remove the whole brain,being chased off and all. There was something on TV recently,maybe Ripley's,
where a girl lived and did pretty well after having half her brain removed to save her from a brain infection. So I think the story is entirely possible. Baboons can be quite ferocious and will even eat prey while it is still alive. I once saw a show where a baboon was casually tearing strips of flesh from the hindquarters of a baby antelope who was obviously in shock and seemed almost oblivious to what was happening but otherwise alert with it's head held high and looking around.

Brian Griffin: Yeah, about your pamphlet... uh, I'm not seeing anything about German history between 1939 and 1945. There's just a big gap.
