[Reporters Zheng Shuting, Xie Wuxiong/Taoyuan Report] The East African baboon who was in Taoyuan City and fled for 18 days was shot by a shotgun during the roundup operation of the Taoyuan City Agriculture Bureau. Lu Jiye, a special committee member of the Agriculture Bureau, did not send him to the hospital immediately , instead took a happy photo first, causing public outrage.
Before the Taoyuan Agricultural Bureau packed the remains of the baboon into the Taipei Zoo yesterday, in addition to covering the box with a coffin, Director Chen Guanyi and others also presented flowers and bowed. All parties satirized "whether the national flag should be covered" or "ridiculous".
Lu's resignation was approved last night, and Chen also asked the mayor for punishment.
The Director of the Agricultural Bureau asked for the resignation of the Disciplinary Committee and was approved
The baboons round-up operation was in charge of the Tao City Agriculture Bureau, and Wang Deji, the director of the animal protection department, was the commander in chief. He went to Pingzhen, Yangmei, and Xinwu for days without finding anything. The day before yesterday, it was reported that the baboons had appeared in the area of Yangmei Zhongzheng Road. The joy of the shooting and the capture of the baboons turned into an exchange of kicks to review the death of the baboons.
The Agricultural Bureau was bombarded with disordered command, unprofessional round-up operations, and improper control of on-site personnel.
Chen Guanyi said that the hunting tools of the bureau are only trapping cages and tranquilizer guns. Joining the rounding up team requires approval. The only unit approved by the Agricultural Bureau is the Leofoo Village Zoo. They were surprised and puzzled by the hunter's appearance.
But he said frankly that the scene of the roundup was chaotic and it was difficult to control all people entering and leaving. The whole case is under investigation by the prosecutors and the police. They will review the operation process and implementation details and work out ways to improve it.
Taoyuan Mayor Zhang Shanzheng posted on Facebook that some colleagues did not demonstrate the quality and value of protecting animals and respecting life in the agricultural administration during the process, and must reflect and review.
The remains of the baboon were confirmed to be a female East African baboon after blood was drawn, DNA tested, and X-rays were taken at the Taipei Zoo yesterday.
The Animal Health Laboratory of the Council of Agriculture will conduct an autopsy today to clarify the cause of death.
After the Yangmei police station interrogated the hunter surnamed Lin, they reported to the prosecutor of the Taoyuan District Prosecutor’s Office to direct the investigation. Because the parties have different opinions, the prosecution will compare the statements, evidence and contact records to find out who the hunter was entrusted with and who ordered the shooting. .
