This is the heartstopping moment a pet puppy was rescued after being kidnapped and held hostage for three days – by a wild monkey.
The two-week-old black and white puppy, named Saru, was grabbed by the primate and taken to the top of an electricity post in Malaysia on September 16.
Residents noticed the hostage situation and began gathering at the location.
They said the monkey was part of a group known for stealing food from houses and now suspected of taking people’s pets as well as cats and dogs that have been missing from their homes.
Concerned residents finally rescued the pooch three days later by scaring the monkey until it dropped the pooch into bushes below.
