Baboons are a common sight around Livingstone.
State broadcaster ZNBC says the blackout affected residents in Livingstone and surrounding areas on Sunday and reports that it was caused by an accident involving "a curious animal".

The baboon was rescued by a wildlife organisation and is now recovering but has "serious wounds", he told the BBC.
While the electric shock would have killed any human, the baboon survived the high voltage due to the fact the species have highly insulated palms.
