With all the depressing news of gorillas being slaughtered and primates being brought closer to extinction, I wanted to share this photograph of an abandoned baby macaque, who was taken in by an animal hospital in Goangdong Province, China. He was very lonely until he made friends with a white pigeon.
In many cultures, the white pigeon or dove, is a symbol of peace and hope. It seems like this little birdy brought a lot of hope to this little macaque… two are now inseparable, and make for an awfully adorable friendship.
Read more about their heartwarming story over at the Daily Mail.
P.S. Doesn’t this remind you of the baby orangutan and tiger friendship?
