A baby monkey was rescued in a temple in the west of India, two days after getting a small metal pot stuck on its head.

Locals had seen the baby with the small metal drinking pot around the temple in Digras for a couple of days before they decided to step in.

With the protective mother not allowing anyone to get near, officials had to temporarily tranquilise her with a dart before quickly removing the pot from the infant.

Local resident Pankaj Jain, 62, said, “We thought the monkeys would find a way to free the baby, but when that did not happen for two days, we called the forest officials.”
