7 years since we rescued him

Today it has been exactly 7 years since we rescued Abu. From the first moment we met him, we realized that he was completely lacking in social skills and did not understand the dynamics of the group, the behaviors of dominance-submission or more importantly, the conflict resolution. Often he gave the wrong signals and provoked the others to chase him, which usually resulted in a fight. The reason for this is because he is the oldest macaque we’ve rescued, so he endured more years deprived of contact with his own kind.

But we are very pleased to tell you today, that he’s learnt how to deal with the hierarchy of the group and now his life has become much more peaceful.
