It seems like a bit of a wild scenario to begin with, but the internet is rejoicing now that the puppy is back safe at home. It all started when the neighbors of a small town witnessed as a two-week-old puppy named Saru was swooped up by a macaque monkey.
This all happened in Taman Lestari Putra, Malaysia.
Two-Week-Old Puppy Abducted by Monkey
According to the New York Post, the monkey then quickly fled to the top of a telephone pole far out of human reach. The monkey then seemed to flaunt and terrify the bystanders as it carried the very young puppy around. It wandered around the town, scaling large rooftops and even tightrope walking across powerlines. The puppy comes from a litter of stray dogs that are living in the neighborhood.
The monkey wasn’t looking to do any harm to the adorable puppy. Rather, the monkey inherited a brand new best friend. “It looked like it was treating the puppy as a friend or its baby, it was very strange,” a bystander named Cherry Lew Yee Lee told the news outlet regarding the situation.
In many ways, the little black and white-colored puppy was in good hands. The puppy just sat in the monkey’s arms as it moved around. Once the puppy was safe and secure it did look a bit weary and tired.
The monkey was not posing any physical threat to the puppy, but the two-week-old baby was without food for several days. This is why Cherry and other neighbors swooped in to save the day.
The neighbors kept meeting the monkey at the telephone pole, which is where the animal went to search for food. Eventually, they started throwing small rocks at the monkey until it dropped little Saru into some bushes below. The video ends with the savior humans cradling the adorable puppy in a blanket.
Additionally, the puppy has now been rescued by a local and will be getting a brand new, monkey-free home. The puppy did not have any apparent injuries from the entire crazy fiasco.
Spider Monkey Finds Home
Meanwhile, a monkey that was taken out of its own home has now found a brand new and safe place to call home.
The Brevard Zoo in Florida has taken in a spider monkey that was confiscated from someone attempting to smuggle the animal in at the U.S. and Mexico border. The 5-month-old creature was brought to the zoo and now goes by the adorable name “J.”
According to Fox 13, the animal had to go through a mandatory testing and quarantine period in Texas. Professionals did study the animal, ultimately determining that living in the wild is no longer an option for the creature. While the animal sadly can’t make it back into the wild, it has found its forever home with a zoo that has a lot of spider monkey experience.
The zoo said that J has been integrating well with the other monkeys — Daisy, Tika, Blue, and Mateo.
