Shocking moment when monkey kidnaps dog and jumps over rooftops with the terrified animal in his arms
Heartbreaking footage captured the moment a monkey kidnapped a dog.
The small dog with black and white fur was grabbed by a monkey twice his size in Parkota, in Jaipur, India, on Saturday, March 18.
Video footage, filmed by a bystander, shows several people standing in the road watching the monkey crawl onto the roof of a red house with the helpless dog in his arms.
The monkey was seen looking around, while the dog slipped repeatedly from his grip.
The dog flapped its paws as the monkey set it briefly on the roof, then grabbed it again and took off with its four-legged prey in its arms.

The thieving monkey jumped from the roof to an adjacent balcony while holding the dog tightly to his chest.
From the balcony, the monkey left for another building while onlookers can be heard laughing in the background.
Once he landed on the building, which looked like it was under construction and had metal posts on the roof, the monkey turned one last time to face his onlookers.
When he took the dog out of sight, the images faded.
It is unclear what happened to the kidnapped dog afterwards.
The monkey kidnapper is just one of many “threats” plaguing the city, locals said.
It’s not the only monkey that has caused mayhem in India, as just a few weeks ago a 70-year-old woman was killed after she was attacked by a pack of rampaging monkeys and slipped and hit her head on the ground. she tried to escape it.
In 2021, the mother of eight-day-old twins claimed her babies had been snatched by ferocious monkeys, killing one of the little girls and saving the other.
In 2020, a mother and four of her children were crushed to death at their home in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh after a wall was knocked down by a pack of monkeys.
The five victims were killed by falling masonry after the wall was “shaking violently” by monkeys while the family slept in the courtyard.
In 2019, a 50-year-old man in Sambhal died after falling from a terrace near his house when attacked by monkeys.
According to reports, it was the sixth monkey-related death in Sambhal alone in 2019.
Just months earlier, a month-and-a-half-old baby was killed by a monkey who apparently jumped into her bed to steal her milk bottle.
Also in the same year, a monkey killed a 60-year-old man and injured nine others after stampeding through a town in central India.
In 2018, a 58-year-old woman suffered serious injuries and died after being attacked by a monkey outside her home in Agra, Uttar Pradesh.
The black and white dog taken from Parkota isn’t the first to be kidnapped by a monkey. In 2021, a two-week-old black and white puppy, now named Saru, was grabbed by the primate and taken to the top of a utility pole in Taman Lestari Putra, Malaysia, on Sept. 16.
The two-week-old black and white puppy, now named Saru, was grabbed by the primate on Sept. 16 and taken to the top of a power pole in Taman Lestari Putra, Malaysia.
Video filmed by one of the rescuers shows concerned residents watching the monkey holding the puppy as it sits in a tree, trying to figure out how to save the little dog.
They try to pelt it with small stones and wood, finally deciding to throw firecrackers on the ground hoping the loud noises will scare the monkey away.
The plan works and the monkey drops the dog, his fall being cushioned by the dense undergrowth. Three residents then scramble to the foliage.
One of them manages to find the little puppy in the bushes and returns it to the others. The puppy was later adopted.
