Two chimpanzees escaped a Las Vegas backyard and rampaged through a neighborhood Thursday, pounding on cars and jumping into at least one vehicle before police killed one primate and tranquilized the other, authorities said.
No people were hurt, but police said they had no choice but to kill after the agitated animals escaped their enclosure about 10 a.m. and started running through yards and opening car doors in a neighborhood of horse pens, palm trees and tile-roofed, landscaped homes.
Neighborhood resident David Plunkett said he saw the male chimpanzee jump on top of a police car — with its lights on and an officer inside — before the animal jumped to the ground and headed into a vacant lot.
The LVPD had to step up and smoke that chimp or lord knows what would have happened. He would have massacred dozens of people, slaughtered babies, created complete havoc. I’m sure today there’s a celebratory luncheon back at the station for the guy who shot a chimp. Are you fuggin serious?
