      I'll do some searching!

      Thanks for the heads-up!

      I did have a somewhat similar story from NY Times, once, in an older browser tab, long since closed. I'll see if I can find it. About a matriarchal group of simians that changed the rules of their society, and ejected rowdies. Very cool.

    •  I found the NYT article. From 2004. (2+ / 0-)

      About a baboon colony that lost its entire complement of dominant males, and the changes they made in consequence, peaceful ones!

      The article is here.

      I found a number of links to the story you reported (including one at NPR!).

      Thank you again, Robyn.
