A monkey wearing a bulletproof vest is killed in a shootout with a drug gang in Mexico

A primate wearing a bulletproof vest was killed in a shootout between police and a major drug gang in Mexico.

On Tuesday in the city of Texcaltitlan, there was an armed clash between the Mexican National Guard and members of La Familia Michoaacana (LFM), one of the country’s largest drug gangs.

The lifeless body of a spider monkey, wearing a bulletproof vest over a camouflage hoodie and a diaper, was found next to one of the gang members killed in the shootout.

Mexican authorities said, “A primate was killed at the scene. The primate is thought to belong to the criminal killed in the shootout. The animal will be autopsied by a specialized veterinarian.”

Authorities said they will also investigate whether the spider monkey, which is under protection because it is in danger of extinction, was illegally used by the gang in the animal trade.

It was also reported that security forces confiscated 20 assault rifles, bulletproof vests, military equipment and 5 vehicles in the raid in which 11 people were killed and 10 people were detained.

Also on Tuesday, a Bengal tiger was seen roaming the streets in the Tecuala region of Nayarit state, where the notorious drug gang Sinaloa is active.

Mexican authorities seized the tiger on Wednesday. While it was reported that the animal was being kept illegally, no information was shared about the tiger’s owner.
