Monkey Wrestles A Dog (VIDEO)

Last week we saw a bear cub and a wolf cub playfighting. A couple of weeks before that, we saw some lions playing with a dog.

This week? It's the a monkey's turn to have fun with a member of the canine family.

Recorded by YouTuber kykilla5656 back in September of last year, only now has the unusual footage of a monkey taking on a pet pooch gone viral.

Shot in an animal sanctuary in Ecuador, it never appears that either one is in danger of hurting the other - much like all the stars of our animals-riding-other-animals video gallery. Ride that tortoise, Mr. Chicken, ride 'im!
