A wild Malaysian monkey “kidnapped” a puppy for three days in Malaysia. The animal took the puppy and carried it to the top of a pole and when it saw the humans, it started running over the roofs and along the power lines.
Locals believe the monkey took a puppy from a litter of stray dogs in the neighborhood on Thursday (16), according to the New York Post. He was named Saru.
Despite the dog carrying the dog to the tops of posts and trees, the primate took good care of the puppy, holding him in his arms.
One of the neighbors, Cheri Liu Yi Lee, spoke to London video channel Newsflare. “The puppy looked tired, but we saw that the monkey didn’t hurt him. He was holding it while walking,” he said.

Saru was adopted by a neighbor and is doing well.
