This small monkey baby refuses to leave his mother, who is passing away on the ground. The images were captured in the few peaceful minutes after the death of a mother monkey, and they depict the suffering that animals feel as a result of poaching.
A poacher shot and killed a mother Rhesus Macaque, and the little one, unknowing that she had already died, clung to her lifeless corpse, “clinging” to her skin, and sleeping in her.
In the flash of an eye, this baby’s entire world altered. His mother, however, was a source of comfort and affection for the child even in death.
This tiny monkey, unfortunately, isn’t the only one. Poachers slaughter tens of thousands of animals each year for their skin, flesh, and other body parts.
Luckily, the poacher who orphaned this monkey was arrested. The infant was reportedly taken by officials to be raised at a government wildlife center.
Almost many of these newborns end up in circuses, zoos, research labs, or as exotic pets, where they will have terrible, short lives. Fortunately, the poacher who orphaned this infant monkey was apprehended by a ranger from Thailand’s National Parks Department.
The assailant was apprehended, and the youngster is now being cared for at a government wildlife center.
Avoiding tourist attractions that contain performing animals is the greatest way to put an end to this enterprise. You may donate to Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand to aid young animals like this one that have been rescued from the exotic animal trade.
