At least they didn’t claim they thought they were pit bulls. But as people like Charla Nash and Andrew Oberle can tell you, a 170 lb. rampaging chimpanzee – let alone two – is nothing to monkey around with. According to officer.com, police were called by a woman who was trapped in her car with one of the chimps on top. Officers tried to corral the two until animal control could arrive with tranquilizer darts, but one of them moved toward a crowd of people. “‘We have an exotic animals policy. It’s to treat them as humanely as we can,’ (Officer Marcus) Martin said. ‘But immediately you recall the woman who has no face because of a chimp. The officer knew they were dangerous animals and he was the last line of defense with citizens behind him.'” That’s when the cop put him down with three blasts from a shotgun. The second chimp was also shot, but with a couple of sleepytime darts and safely returned to her cage. So the answer to the question, ‘what caliber for chimpanzee?’ appears to be settled.
