Erode: In this world where few parents abandon their infants and children send their parents to old age homes. A monkey has adopted an abandoned pup after rescuing it from ferocious dogs .
The monkey not only saved the pup from bigger stray dogs but also undertook the role of a mother by protecting it from others. It did not allow anybody to come near the young one and also fed the pup with what ever food it gets from the passers-by.
An eye-witness,K Srinivasan, said. “When there was an unusual barking noise, we came out of our house and saw that a homeless puppy was almost about to be killed by mongrels. However, suddenly a monkey came from a tree nearby and chased away the strays and took the puppy away before rescuing it”.
He added.“Touched by the emotional bond of this mismatched family, we started to feed them biscuits and milk”, he added. The macaque not only made sure to carry her “newly-adopted son” wherever she goes, but also ensures to play with the dog whenever it required.
K Saradha, a resident and house wife, said. “It (monkey) takes the puppy even to the tree top to play. It is amazing to see the monkey keeping a tight hold on the dog even when she climbs the tree”.
Mrs. Saradha, also said that, what ever the monkey gets, it made sure that her “son” eats first and then takes the leftovers.
