On December 17, 2011, we were surprised to hear noises in front of our house.
My big sister Kaman opened the door and saw a type of monkey or ‘beruk’ (in Malay) near the front door.
‘Beruk’ is a big monkey about the size of me that is easy to be tamed and trained to do lots of things.
We checked our CCTV and saw it messing up our shoe rack looking for food.
We named the monkey Kiki.
My father called the Department Of Wildlife And National Parks Peninsular Malaysia (PERHILITAN) and very soon, they reached our house.
He gave us a cage trap and we put it in front of our house.
We put a banana in it and poke a stick into the banana so that when something disturb the banana, the cage door will close.
That evening we heard noises in front of our house and saw something was trapped in the cage on our CCTV.
We went out to check the cage and saw a fox trapped in the cage instead of a monkey!
We named the fox Mr. Mus.
When we checked on the CCTV, we saw that the fox was conscious of the trap.
It went around the cage searching for other ways to take the banana instead of going inside the cage.
It only went in after trying other ways and once it touched the banana, the cage door was closed so Mr. Mus was trapped in the cage.
The next day, the uncle from PERHILITAN came and took Mr. Mus to a safe place and set up a new cage for the monkey.
We have to buy another bunch of banana because Mr. Mus had eaten our last banana 🙂
I think Mr. Mus is very cute but very smelly.
