Orphaned Baby Monkey Is Raised With Help From Some Unlikely New Friends

Life was looking grim for an infant vervet monkey who was found on the side of the road in Zimbabwe. The baby monkey was clinging to his dead mother when he was found by some good samaritans who took him to an animal sanctuary in the area. This sanctuary didn’t have any monkeys of his kind, but it wasn’t the humans who helped this little guy become who he is today!

This Monkey Was Found Orphaned And Scared For His Life

This little guy’s name is Horace. This vervet monkey lives at the Twala Trust Animal Sanctuary in Zimbabwe, Africa. Horace was taken to Twala as a baby after losing his mother in a tragic accident.

“His mom had been hit by a car on a very busy highway. He was found sitting on her body, on the side of the road. He’s lucky that he got picked up by the right person, who then brought him here,” Twala founder Sarah Carter told The Dodo in 2016.
