Baby Monkey Hasn’t Seen Mom In 3 Weeks, But Watch As They Recognize Each Other For 1st Time
When a student attending Kingsway High School in Amanzimtoti, South Africa spotted a baby vervet monkey painfully hopping around on an injured leg, he called for help.
A team of volunteers from the Umsizi Vervet Rescue Centre spent hours trying to catch the elusive little guy, who they named Pearce.
Naturally his monkey family was very angry and upset that the naughty humans were chasing after their poor baby. They didn’t understand that the rescuers were only trying to help!
After the team finally managed to nab the slippery little fella, they took him back to the center where a vet could treat his injuries.
He spent several weeks under their expert care until his leg finally healed up good as new.
In the meantime, poor little Pearce missed his mommy, and his family had probably given up hope of ever seeing him again.
Thankfully, the organization’s mission is to rehabilitate vervet monkeys, and they didn’t want to keep Pearce any longer than necessary.
After he got the all-clear from the vet, it was time for him to finally go back home.
Unfortunately, there was one big problem – these monkeys are known to travel for many miles within their territory.
The team searched for hours before they finally found his family chilling out on top of a small building near the school where he was originally found.
When Pearce’s cage popped open, he instantly sped off towards his family.
Their sweet reunion will leave you in tears. Check out the video below to see the precious moment when mom recognizes that her long-lost baby has finally come home.
Awww, she acts exactly like a human mama would!
