[Reporter Chen Enhui/Taoyuan Report] On the 18th day, the baboon who appeared inexplicably appeared in Taoyuan. At around 3:00 this afternoon, he was locked in a house while hiding in a house on Zhongzheng Road, Yangmei District. After shooting the baboon hiding in the house with a tranquilizer gun, the baboon collapsed to the ground on the spot due to the effect of the drug. Finally, after the baboon was caught with a net, the days of escaping outside were ended. However, after the baboon was caught, the inspection found that He was shot by a shotgun and died of his injuries. As for when he was shot, the police will further clarify.

Liu Xiuqing, a special committee member of the Peach City Bureau of Agriculture, explained that the whereabouts of the baboon was found in Fugang area at 3:25 p.m. today, and it was found to have entered the nearby campus and residential buildings. Injured by a shotgun, he was rushed to Leofoo Village for medical treatment and died.

Liu Xiuqing explained in the evening that the East African baboon was injured during the roundup and died due to the seriousness of the injury and the ineffectiveness of first aid.

When we arrived at the scene, the baboon was already injured. After investigation, it was shot by a shotgun. Because the Taoyuan City government personnel only equipped with anesthesia guns and did not entrust external personnel to join, the Bureau of Agriculture will call the police to clarify the relevant situation.
