A monkey wearing a bulletproof vest was found along with ten dead people after a bloody shootout between police, soldiers and gunmen in central Mexico on June 14. To get more news about bullet proof , you can visit bulletproofboxs.com official website.

The spider monkey found was wearing a camouflage fleece jacket and a diaper, but officials were unsure if it died from gunfire.
Officials confirmed that ten were killed and four injured in the shootout.Photos from the shootout scene showed the monkey on top of a dead gunman's body, apparently his owner.

It was speculated that the owner of the monkey was a member of the La Familia Michoacana criminal group, the Mexico Daily Post reported. A primate was killed at the scene, which was presumably owned by a criminal who was also killed at the scene," state prosecutors said in a statement given to the Associated Press, adding, "An autopsy will be carried out on the animal by a veterinarian specialized in the species." Animal-trafficking charges will be considered against the suspects who survived the shootout.

Prosecutors in the State of Mexico said three detectives were also injured in the gun battle. Their injuries were said to be not life-threatening. The shooting happened about 80 miles southwest of Mexico City, in Texcaltitla.

Prosecutors said detectives seized 20 rifles, pistols, military-style uniforms, and bulletproof vests at the scene. The area has been frequently killings and extortion by drug gangs.

The shooting occurred about 80 miles (130 kilometers) southwest of Mexico City, in the town of Texcaltitlan, when the suspects opened fire on police. Prosecutors said the detectives seized 20 rifles, pistols and military-style uniforms and bulletproof vests at the scene. The area has been the scene of frequent killings and extortion by drug gangs.

Like scenes out of a narco television series, exotic animals have long been part of the Mexican criminal underworld. On June 15, the Attorney General for Environmental Protection said it had seized a tiger in Tecuala, in the Pacific coast state of Nayarit, near the border with Sinaloa, which is home to the cartel of the same name.

The office said it acted "after receiving reports about a Bengal tiger that was wandering the streets of Tecuala," and found that the animal was being illegally kept there.

Those reports were based on a video posted on social media earlier last week, showing a young woman shrieking as she came across the tiger on the street in a residential neighborhood. "Be quiet, it might come close," a woman can be heard saying in the video.
