We are too familiar with stories of humans adopting dogs, but have you ever heard of a monkey adopting a puppy and act as if he was her own child? Well, at least in this following story.
Reportedly, a monkey has taken on the role as “mother” to a stray puppy in India. Perhaps, it would not seem so strange if the monkey and the puppy had been raised together, but what’s unbelievably remarkably about this pair is that they found each other in the wild.
The monkey was caught on tape carrying the dog in her arms while they walked on the streets of India. The local community was filled with the feeling of love for this odd couple that they made sure they were healthy and well fed.
Apparently, the ‘mommy’monkey always make sure that the puppy eats first.
“People who have seen them spoke of their strong mutual affection and described their bond as the most caring thing in the world- to take care of a puppy in danger and protect him like a parent,” Zee News wrote. “Their undying affection gives us a valuable lesson about relationships.”
Reportedly, the local forest department has taken the dog into custody and the monkey might have escaped since. Though the report is not so clear due to the translation from Tamil to English, it’s quite sad to hear so. Hopefully, the little dog would not feel so frightened as being taken away from his mama.
What an beautiful relationship! We, as humans, probably learn something from these animals.
