[Reporter Wang Rongxiang/Kaohsiung Report] The escaped baboon in Taoyuan was arrested today, and it was reported that he was shot by a shotgun?
He was seriously injured and died!
Gao City Councilor Huang Jie thinks it is sad that the baboons' escape journey ended in such a way. Taiwan is a civilized country. If we can do it all over again, I hope that human beings can treat any life in a more gentle and compassionate way.
A baboon that appeared from nowhere wandered around Taoyuan for 18 days. When it was hiding in a house on Zhongzheng Road, Yangmei District at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, it was locked in the house. The staff of the Agriculture Bureau rushed to the house and pointed a tranquilizer gun at the baboon inside the house. After the shooting, the baboon collapsed to the ground due to the onset of the drug effect, and the staff of the Agriculture Bureau netted the baboon again, ending its days of roaming outside.
