Heart-stopping footage has caught the 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 Taman Lestari Putra, Malaysia on September 16.

Residents noticed the hostage situation and began gathering at the location. They said the monkey was part of a wild monkey gang known for stealing food from houses and now suspected of taking people’s pets.

Concerned residents finally rescued the pooch three days later on September 18 by scaring the monkey until it dropped it into bushes below. The monkey then made an escape into the trees.

Footage shows the residents throwing firecrackers on the ground to make a loud noise which would scare the monkey. 

The monkey is startled by the bang and drops the monkey into foliage below. Three residents then scramble towards the foliage. 

One of them manages to find the little puppy in the bushes and passes it back to the others.  

Onlooker Cherry Lew Yee Lee said: ‘The puppy looked tired and weary but the monkey did not seem to hurt it. The monkey was just holding the puppy while it moved around.

‘It looked like it was treating the puppy as a friend or its baby, it was very strange. However, we still needed to save the poor dog because it appeared to have been starving.’

Cherry and her neighbours went to the area where the monkey was last spotted three times but they were always being outrun by the animal, which fled along electricity lines and into trees.

As more locals arrived to help, the monkey retreated back to the jungle but returned again to find food while still clutching the small dog in its arms.

On the third day of the kidnapping, defiant locals were successful in scaring the monkey by pelting it with small rocks and wood until it freed the dog.

A local took the pooch home to check for injuries before adopting it and it is now in a stable condition at its new house. 

It was believed to be a stray puppy snatched from a litter in the neighbourhood. 

The Malaysian government receives an average of 3,800 complaints from the public about monkeys nationwide every year prompting the country’s wildlife department to devise a mass culling program with up to 70,000 macaques killed annually between 2013 and 2016.
