He has recovered and been releast back into a protected area. This was posted just a few weeks ago. I was very happy watching that video, he got out of the cage they used to carry him back in so fast I thought they must have cut some of the video out. He climed the nearest tree he could get to just as fast as having both hands. It's a happy ending to a very bad war on these animals.
Thank you for sharing.
There is a update on the 5/12/2012/ 5:... It says he lost his right hand and they are hoping that he does not get infection from him trying to bite his arm off to get out of the snare.
They said that when he heals that he was going to be released back into the wild. If it is not a protected area this would only sentence him to death because he will never be able to climb fast enough to get away from predators and poachers.
Go to the International Animal Rescue and leave a comment on their contact page and ask them not to release him into a unprotected area.
this is so sad
So very glad he was saved. I hope he made a full recovery and was released.
I just seen a story on tv about palm oil and just how many things it is in. Now I will start to pay attention when buying things. It was a good thing that you found him.
thanks for sharing, glad he was found :)
Oui, Pelangsi est un orang outan chanceux...
Cette triste histoire qui ne se finit pas trop mal est malheureusement le reflet de notre époque. Je ne crois pas que les producteurs d'huile de palme prendront un jour conscience des effets destructeurs de leur activité et surtout je ne crois pas qu'ils prendront des mesures pour préserver l'habitat des orangs outans. Leur intérêt principal étant que les animaux disparaissent pour poursuivre leur honteuse activité. La seule alternative : ne plus consommer de produits pouvant contenir de l'huile de palme pour faire baisser ce marché !
----- Yes, Pelangsi orangutan is a lucky ...
This sad story does not end too badly is unfortunately a reflection of our times. I do not think the producers of palm oil will one day realize the destructive effects of their activity and especially I do not think they will take steps to preserve the habitat of orangutans. Their main interest is that the animals disappear to continue their shameful activity. The only alternative: not to consume products that contain palm oil to drive down the market!
