Forty-six wild monkeys were saved by the Guangxi Forest Public Security Bureau on Friday afternoon.

Among them were 28 slow Loris monkeys and 19 macaques. Both are on China’s animal protection list.

The forest police arrested two of the four suspects at scene.

The suspects, Mo and Wei, have admitted to the crime of buying, transporting and selling endangered animals illegally. They are now being held in custody by the police.

The police had received several reports from residents in Nanning, Guangxi since October about illegal trade of endangered monkeys.

They noticed four of their suspects during an investigation and followed a suspect’s car on Thursday night. After a long chase, police finally caught the suspects near a snake farm.
