There were young Japanese monkey and young boar at Kyoto zoo. The monkey's mother died due to traffic accident. (The monkey's mother died because of traffic accident.) And the boar fell down into ditch. The little monkey that was beside his dead mother was taken by a man and brought him to the zoo. However, the boar that fell down to the ditch was saved by another man and took him to the same zoo as that of the little monkey. The little monkey's name is "Miwa" while the little boar's name is "Uribo". Both are male. A month later the little monkey and the boar were together. They become good friends. And then little monkey ride on the little boar’s back. The little boar could run fast but the little monkey clung to the little boar's back. It's like a rodeo.
The people were coming to the zoo and watched them. They were the talk of the town. But the little monkey got hurt recently because a raccoon bit him.
The little monkey got injury on his left arm and leg. He had 9 stitches on his left arm while 10 stitches on his left leg. It seems the wound will heal in 10 days. It was painful to see the little monkey on TV.
