Duck Gives His Life to Save Monkey Best Friend
Having a best friend does not only apply to humans. This can also happen to the most unlikely pair, like this duck and his monkey best friend, who grew up together on a farm and became best friends. However, their story has a heartbreaking ending after both recently died of electrocution.
True friends stick with around until the end and this was literally what happened to a duck and monkey who were been friends for a long time. According to reports from Elite Readers, both animals “grew up together” and “despite coming from a totally different species, they bonded and simply became best friends.”
The story of their friendship is heartbreaking, though, as the owner of both animals discovered their bodies lying lifeless next to each other. The owner who broke down after seeing them, saying that “they have been good friends since birth and have always stuck together.”
Fuzz Fix reported what happened during that fateful day. “The monkey was playing around outside, he grabbed hold of an electric wire on the ground,” the report said. The monkey was instantly electrocuted and was, “unable to let go of the live wire.”
Hearing the desperate cries of his friend, the duck did not hesitate and ran immediately to rescue the monkey. Unfortunately, his efforts did not pay off as both got entangled in the same mess.
Seeing the tragic fate of both his pets, the owner “couldn’t help but cry when he saw his precious pets’ tragic fate.” according to Elite Readers.
The bond between the monkey and the duck may seem unusual, but what makes the event more extraordinary is the selfless act that extended beyond the lines of species.
