Cute Orphaned Orangutan Rescued From A Life On A Leash
A baby orangutan is in safe hands after being found with nylon rope around her neck in the forest of Lower Labai, West Kalimantan, Indonesia. After a villager heard a sound similar to a baby crying and discovered the little simian, he took her to his home to keep as a pet and tied the rope around her neck. Officers found the animal nearly two years later in a severely weakened state and have given her to the Provincial Natural Resources Conservation Centre to recover.
