How can anyone shoot a living being over a hundred times! This person is sick &* should be put away for a long time! May this strong-willed Orangutan live a happy life!

Shame on man for not respecting life. We if to continue publicizing this and eventually the public might react in such a way that the plantations will stop killing orangutans.

Isaac Bashevis Singer Nobel Peace Prize Winner wrote in his book, 'Enemies a love story', "As often has Herman had witnessed the slaughter of animals and fish, he always had the same thought. In their behaviour toward creatures, all men were Nazi’s. The smugness with which man could do with other species as he pleased exemplify the most extreme racist theories the principle that might is right. Lest we forget!

How disgusting, what on earth is wrong with people. We humans must learn to live with other creatures and stop plundering the planet, or we will ultimately become extinct.... sadly, after we have destroyed everything else!
