This baby monkey is truly a miracle. Her rescuers named her Lucky for a good reason 🙂 She survived a horrific but accidental brush with death when she tried to climb a pole. She was electrocuted but survived! And boy, am I glad that she did! What a sweetie! She made a full recovery. Isn’t that awesome?
