A heartwarming story from China: The abandoned monkey who has found love with a pigeon.


They’re an odd couple in every sense but a monkey and a pigeon have become inseparable at an animal sanctuary in China. The 12-week-old macaque – who was abandoned by his mother – was close to death when it was rescued on Neilingding Island, in Goangdong Province.

After being taken to an animal hospital his health began to improve but he seemed spiritless – until he developed a friendship with a white pigeon. The blossoming relationship helped to revive the macaque who has developed a new lease of life, say staff at the sanctuary.

One comment on “Monkey Loves Pigeon
  1. While monkeys and pigeons may co-exist peacefully in china, humans and animals do not. Live monkeys have their brains bashed in while perspective diners view the carnage. It is believed the brains are most nutritious when eaten from a freshly killed animal.

    The only country where monkeys are truly safe is india, where the Animal Cruetly Prevention Act prohibits rounding up monkeys to be sent abroad to laboratories, prohibits the confining of monkeys and does not punish them even after some mischief… Incidentally vivisection in india on the college level has been completely banned.

    China has the world’s largest breeking facility for laboratory monkeys, housing 50 at any given time.
