Orangutans kept  locked up in tiny cages at Malaysian zoo
Orangutans are being cruelly locked in cages for up to 24 hours a day by callous zoo-keepers. Some of the creatures, the world’s largest tree-dwellers, appear never to be allowed out. Largely abandoned by staff, they sit and stare from cages as small as 5ft by 5ft.The intelligent, red-haired apes are an endangered species deserving iconic status in their native Malaysia – but are given little food or water at a zoo there.

 

Nature Alert boss Sean Whyte said: “A species that should be the pride of all Malaysia is instead being treated like prisoners on death row. We don’t know how long it’s been like this but it’s months and possibly years.”

He has warned authorities about other animals in cramped quarantine at Melaka Zoo, south of Kuala Lumpur. And the Mirror has exposed Mayalsia’s Johor Zoo, where a chain-smoking orangutan and an elephant in chains were freed.

To help these orangutans, please email the Malaysian Embassy or Melaka Zoo, south of Kuala Lampure   cccnem@hotmail.com

      Zoos & circuses must be banned forever. Animals must have enough space. Offer these people to lock themselves in cages.

      This is absolutely disgusting. Their wild habitat is disappearing and you are keeping these revered creatures in an abomiable situation. Shame on you.
