Primate and pigeon nationalism

Even sillier than horse nationalism:

A monkey, which had crossed the Indian border, was arrested by wildlife officials in Bahawalpur, Express News reported on Monday.

As soon as the monkey entered the Cholistan area of Bahawalpur, locals tried to capture it but failed as the monkey dodged past them.

The residents of the area then informed the wildlife officials, who after some investigation and struggle, managed to capture the monkey.

The monkey was later placed at the Bahawalpur Zoo and has been named Bobby.

This is not the first case of such cross-border animal arrests.

Last year, Indian police held a pigeon under armed guard after it was caught on an alleged spying mission for Pakistan.
