  • The infant monkey was left orphaned after locals poisoned its parents to protect their crops 
  • Pregnant dog’s maternal instinct kicked in, leading to her adopting the baby monkey, photographer said
  • ‘The monkey infant seemed to be about 10 days old when locals poisoned the adult monkeys,’ he said 

Heart-warming images show a heavily pregnant dog who seems to have adopted an orphaned baby monkey after its mother was poisoned.

‘Although sometimes there are conflicts between monkeys and dogs, the relationship of a mother is more important.

‘I felt that when a mother saw a baby who is very small and left alone and there is nobody to take care of him, the maternal instinct took the initiative to adopt a small baby even if it’s from different species.

‘This type of relationship is a lesson for humans who have become selfish and kill each other just because he is from another cast or religion. ‘
