Monkey Kidnaps Puppy In Malaysia

A video has gone viral showing a small puppy being kidnapped by a wild monkey. The puppy is said to have been just two-week-old, now named Saru. The puppy was taken to the top of an electricity post in Taman Lestari Putra, Malaysia.

A video filmed by a rescuer and one of the local residents showing the monkey holding onto the puppy as it perched in a tree as residents try to work out how to rescue the captured puppy.

The residents tried throwing small rocks and wood at the monkey that unfortunately failed, they decided to scare the monkey instead by using firecrackers hoping the loud noise would do the trick. The plan worked and the monkey dropped the puppy. The three residents head towards the foliage and one of them finds the little puppy in the bushes. She quickly passes it back to the others and wraps the puppy up to safety.

One onlooker, Cherry Lew Yee Lee said:

The puppy looked tired and weary but the monkey did not seem to hurt it

The monkey was just holding the puppy while it moved around. It looked like it was treating the puppy as a friend or its baby, it was very strange. However, we still needed to save the puppy because it appeared to have been starving.

Cherry and the local residents had gone to the area where the monkey was last spotted before but the monkey was too quick and fled along electricity lines and into the surrounding jungle. 

Finally, they managed to rescue the puppy and checked if the dog had any injuries. It was later adopted by the local residents and is doing well.

The locals said the monkey kidnapper was part of a gang of animals already known to steal food from houses. This incident has led to the question of other pets disappearing. 

The Malaysian government receives an average of 3,800 complaints from the public about monkeys nationwide every year. It’s probably not the first time a monkey has caused havoc!
