Dog adopts Capuchin monkey

2018-02-21 21:45
This Capuchin monkey was removed from its natural habitat just weeks after birth. This dog recently lost its five pups. Residents of the neighborhood gave the monkey to this dog to nurse. And the dog nursed it. Now, months later, the two are inseparable. But local residents called police because the monkey would become aggressive when people approached. Police have taken custody of the animals in efforts to separate them and send the monkey back into the wild. But some animal experts have expressed concern about the animals being separated, as the monkey could be rejected by its species in the wild. Credit: Police Handout via Reuters
