Millions of people have been touched by the extraordinary loyalty of a duck and a monkey on social media.
Despite the tragic events that put their unwavering relationship to the test, the lesson they taught the world is one of the most poignant.
Having a devoted friend is like having the greatest treasure, and some friendships make a far deeper impression on us than we realize. Those who transcend time, space, appearance, distinctions, and species…
And our animal companions provide us with plenty of it. They know that if their buddy, no matter how different they are, needs them, they will be there for them, through thick and thin.
Because, despite their best efforts to refute this overwhelming argument, they do have sentiments.
There are certain little creatures who sacrifice their own lives to rescue the lives of their devoted and unwavering companions.
Since they met, they have become inseparable; they spend their days together and are unable to function without each other. But, unfortunately, fate would surprise them with a tragic event.
The incident occurred as the young monkey was calmly playing when he stumbled upon an electrical cable that had fallen to the ground owing to a human’s irresponsibility.
The young monkey chose to play with the cable, oblivious to the grave peril he was putting himself in.
Unfortunately, the line began to produce electric shocks as soon as he grasped it in his hands, causing the frantic monkey to scream in pain while clutching to the cable and unable to free himself.
His companion, the duck, considered things as hopeless before the stunning incident. But his love made him respond swiftly, and she went to rescue him, not realizing that he would be shocked as well.
What a tragedy! Both of their buddies died as a result of the electric shock. The owner was upset, and MY Youth Animal Rights and Welfare, an animal rescue organization, presented his tale, which went viral and moved millions of people.
And it wasn’t for nothing that a real love story like that, which caused the two friends to cross the rainbow bridge together, elicited such diverse reactions on social media.
« The duck and monkey’s owner is the man in the photo who is broken down. Since infancy, the duck and the monkey have been best friends and have always stayed close… Both were great buddies when they were born and even more so after they died. “I doubt there are many persons like him in the world who cherish friendship in this way,” the message stated.
