When a car refused to stop for a routine check in northern Vietnam on Wednesday night, cops knew something was wrong.
They started chasing the vehicle, firing a shot into the air as a warning - and still the car kept speeding away. That's when cops decided to shoot the tires of the car, and finally it came to a crashing halt.
Two men jumped out of the car and started to run. Cops managed to catch the driver but are still searching for the other man.
When the officers inspected the vehicle they found 118 critically endangered pangolins wrapped up tightly in bags piled on top of each other and with no access to food or water - 113 of them were still alive.
