Cute Baby Monkey From Skopje Zoo Gets Treated Like A Child

My name is Goran Anastasovski and I am a freelance photographer from Macedonia. I love nature and wild animals, although I usually compensate the lack of wild animals in my surroundings by taking pictures of animals in a zoo nearby. One day I came across a beautiful story of one Skopje Zoo’s resident – baby baboon Luka.

The little monkey was abandoned by his mother, thus, zoo keepers took him under their wing and whelmed him with care. Luka was given a tiny bed, several sets of baby clothes and a bunch of toys. Now Luka looks like one happy child being fed from a milk bottle, wearing snug nightwear or simply chewing on a pen.

So what's going to happen when he needs social contact in his own species? This has been done in many scientific experiments and failed.

The baby was kept with the zookeeper because his mum refuses him. After he got old enough he was reunited with the others from his species

Although your photos are nice, this is just horrible. The zoo is exploiting & abusing this animal, & he must be rescued.

Total dislike. He's not a human baby. He should be introduced to a group of his own species, not played with as a housepet.
