A lemur which was taken home by zookeepers after an operation has made best friends with their dog. Stumpy the lemur and Pie the Labrador Collie cross met when the primate was brought home by Joy and John Palmer before Christmas to convalesce after an operation on his back leg and the two have since been inseparable. Joy, who runs Porfell Wildlife Park and Sanctuary, near Liskeard, Cornwall with John, says Pie’s paternal instincts have kicked in after he ‘adopted’ the lemur, which he is now nursing back to full health.
