  • Monkey Adopts Adorable Stray Puppy

    One of the most adorable and heartwarming things to see is animals caring for babies of different species. A rhesus macaque monkey found a stray dog puppy in the mid-western Indian city of Allahabad on Tuesday, and adopted it as if it were its own baby. As the primate was seen attentively holding the pup in its arms and carrying it through the city's streets, local people gathered around to see the two animals and take pictures of them. Both the monkey and the pup were given food and plenty of attention. This beautiful example of inter-species friendship and charity should serve as an example for us people too.
