People are eating orangutans to extinction in Indonesia, a new study says. Hundreds of the big apes are hunted annually for meat or to eliminate threats to crops in the country's Kalimantan region (map) on the island of Borneo.

Terrible. Humanity should restrain its numbers and demands on nature.

Such killings are no longer socially acceptable. I hope in Indonesian region will follow example of Tanzania, where reduced the rates of livestock attacks by large carnivores from an average of two a week to zero.
Thank you Simone.
