This year, there has been a litany of news stories about Langurs and monkeys of the Rhesus Macaques species and the terror that they have orchestrated all throughout South Asia. But, through the midst of all the chaos, monkey-vs-human attacks and assaults comes a touching story about a langur monkey and a man who befriended it. A video clip recently went viral of a langur attending the funeral of a man who used to feed and care for him in their native country of Sri Lanka. The touching footage depicts the langur standing atop his fallen friend's open casket during the family viewing. While the family of the deceased could be heard weeping in the background, the concerned langur could be seen gently stroking his old friend's face before trying to lift his arm as if he were trying to wake him up.
