Two chimpanzees go on rampage in Las Vegas - Police shoot and kill a chimp (my response)

A pair of chimpanzees went on the rampage in Las Vegas for about 30-minutes and, while the male had to be shot dead, the female was tranquilized and sent back into the cage from where the pair had escaped.

The owner had necessary permission from Las Vegas city, as well as a license from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to keep them.

This has been reported in foxnews dated 12th of July 2012.

The male was more than 150-lbs in weight and had caused damages to cars parked in the neighborhood by jumping on the hoods.

The primates escaped in the morning at around 10 am and, thankfully, no one was hurt even though properties were damaged.
