Macaque monkey befriends dog

The monkey was spotted by Yoshiaki Mae in the mountains as it looked confused and frightened, provoking him to rescue the nine-inch-tall animal.

Noticing the instant friendship the macaque developed with his pet mongrel dog, named Goma, Mae took the monkey home to care for it.

Since then, the rescued animal has clung on to Goma, keeping itself attached to the fluffy black canine for comfort.

Mae’s neighbours have all warmed to the new little resident, but the saviour plans to return the macaque back into its natural habitat once it shows signs of regaining its health.
