Recently, a Twitter user @sunfloweraidil tweeted a photo of a monkey chained to a car under the scorching hot sun while the owner went for lunch.

You know how hot Malaysia is these days, if we cannot stand it under the sun, imagine what the poor monkey felt.

The monkey was chained with a metal chain around its neck.

According to @sunfloweraidil, the friend who snapped the picture also lodged a police report on the matter.

If you really want an exotic animal, then please make sure you know how to take care of it.

Animals should not be mistreated like this! These animals have feelings too!

Many netizens had since expressed their anger and sadness towards the incident.

Some also think that exotic animals should not be kept as a pet!

If only the monkey could talk, I am sure it would tell the owner how it felt under the heat.
