Forest management officials in the Central Highlands' Kon Tum Province recovered a deceased red-shanked douc langur and a live infant last week.
The provincial police and forest rangers discovered the dead langur during a patrol on Monday in a sack tossed into the woods by a fleeing suspect.
A worker from a local rubber plantation found the baby langur the same day.
Local forest managers will nurse the infant langur to adulthood before returning it to nature and are still searching for the poachers.
The douc langur is a protected primate species that is believed to be endangered.
