The Best of Friends

The true story of a lonely monkey and a friendly 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.

… The blossoming relationship helped to revive the macaque who has developed a new lease of life, say staff at the sanctuary.

That picture just makes me giddy.

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    You know, this story strikes me as a really excellent argument for animal rights folks. What better way to demonstrate consciousness and the need for sensitivity than a cross-species friendship like this? I mean, come on: animals can have friends.
