There is little doubt that reunions are always a joyous event. Two monkey brothers gave it an adorable spin by hugging as soon as they saw each other. Unfortunately, the story behind their reunion is a rather sad one.
The brothers were reportedly rescued from captivity. However, the monkeys were separated when they were taken in by different non-government organizations. Luckily, the rescuers realized that the two needed to be reunited. When they finally meet after the lengthy separation, their reaction is pure magic.
These adorable brothers are so happy to see each other again.
The little monkeys had to be taken in for rehabilitation after spending most of their young lives in captivity. Although they have been through a lot, it is possible that the brothers always had each other.
It is unclear why the chimps needed to be separated when they were rescued. However, it is clear that the non-government organizations which took them in did a great job in helping them heal.
When it was finally time for the reunion, the brothers were understandably excited. The tiny monkeys didn’t waste any time. They immediately hugged each other tightly and didn’t care that someone was recording the adorable meeting.
They even kissed each other in their excitement.
Some netizens were understandably concerned about the chimps’ mother. There is a possibility that the two were taken from their mother by poachers. Young chimps could reportedly sell at a fair price, which is probably why the brothers ended up in captivity.
Although it is unclear where the monkeys will be taken after their reunion, people can rest assured that they are in good hands and will be together for a long time.
Thousands of chimpanzees are poached and taken into captivity annually. The brothers are indeed lucky that they were rescued by the NGOs. Hopefully, their story will remind people that monkeys do not do well in captivity and are best left in the wild.
Watch the adorable reunion below:

One dog clearly proved that his owner is his everything from being his master to his best friend. Losing him would be unbearable for the broken-hearted dog that he would do anything to protect his human, even from the people who were trying to save him.
Rescued German Shepherd Saves Family After Smelling Gas
They are not called man’s best friend for nothing.
A German Shepherd in Long Neck, Delaware is being hailed a hero when she woke her owner up in the middle of the night after smelling gas. Five-year-old Greta started barking in the early hours of November 13 and wouldn't stop, waking Ken Walsh up.
Ken was confused why Greta, who is usually the quietest of the family's five dogs, wouldn't settle down and so he got out of bed to investigate. The panicked dog led him to the kitchen, and that’s when he smelled the gas leak.
Shelter Pleads For Expert To Help Save Neglected Sheep With 90 Lbs Of Wool
Chris the Sheep was spotted carrying around 90 pounds of merino wool. Expert Ian Elkins, a four-time national shearing champion, took the job and set a Guinness Book Of World Records for his feat.
Walk into the National Museum of Australia and there you’ll see, displayed among Aboriginal paintings, tools and other artifacts that depict the country’s history, roughly 90 lbs. of wool.
The thick fleece “helps tell Australia’s pastoral story, and represents the important work the RSPCA has done in this country for all animals,” the National Museum of Australia wrote in a February 2016 Facebook post.
So… what’s a pile of wool doing in a national museum? Glad you asked....
