Local police in Dongxin, Guangxi province were in for an unexpected discovery last week when they found 37 endangered monkeys in a quarreling couple's home.

Police arrived to the scene after a distressed 3am call from a woman who reported her husband for bringing home a mistress and using drugs.

Upon arriving at the apartment, they found the man, surnamed Jiang, wielding a knife. After subduing him, the officers searched the premises and found a small quantity of meth

But then a strong smell caught their attention. It led them to the utility room, where they found the monkeys, all classified as endangered by the Chinese government (20 slow lorises, under A-class protection, and 17 macaques, under B-class protection).

Due to a long time in captivity, the primates were visibly weak, and some bore scars. Dead monkeys were also found in the trash.

Jiang denied any knowledge about the affair, although police found notebooks of his featuring highly detailed descriptions of the sales detailing his monkey-smuggling business. Their most common destinations were Anhui and Liaoning provinces.
