Vegas Cops Shoot Mysterious Chimps That Appeared from Nowhere Before We Can Ask Where They Came FromS

Las Vegas had a weird morning Thursday, as two chimps magically appeared from nowhere to run across busy highways.

News outlets are reporting that it's unknown from whence the chimps came, though the Guardian Express newspaper might be onto something with its suggestion that perhaps they escaped from a small nearby zoo known to have poor animal containment conditions. They could be from anywhere, really.

Reports are conflicting, but the majority seem to suggest that one of the chimps was tranquilized, then captured alive by police, while the other, injured, has departed this earthly realm to go run and play in the great Las Vegas highway in the sky.

Some reports state that both chimps have been killed.
