An Unusual Friendship

Cuddling with a friend.

Every once in a while a story of animals from different species finding friendship and/or love comes along that warms the heart. This is one of them.

The now 12-week-old macaque pictured above was abandoned by his mother and discovered close to death on Neilingding Island in Goangdong Province, China. The rescued macaque was taken to a nearby animal sanctuary where his health began to improve. However he seemed spiritless and depressed...until a white pigeon came into his life.

The macaque and the pigeon developed a deep friendship that helped to revive the macaque's spirit. The staff at the animal sanctuary say he has developed a new lease on life.

The two have become inseparable.
