Chimps get loose in Las Vegas; 1 killed, other tranquilized
LAS VEGAS (MCT) — Police here took a brief walk on the wild side Thursday, tracking down two escaped chimpanzees — shooting and killing one animal and tranquilizing the other, officials said.
Several panicked residents called dispatchers shortly after 10 a.m. to report that the chimps were acting aggressively in a northwest Las Vegas neighborhood. Officers moved in to find a male and a female in “an agitated state,” said Officer Laura Meltzer, a spokeswoman for Las Vegas police.
