Ban Orangutan Boxing in Thailand
This petition had 1,351 supporters
End the cruel practice of orangutan boxing at Safari World in Thailand. Orangutans are forced to kickbox in front of crowds. The apes are dressed in shorts and boxing gloves. The fights go on for 30 minutes and then the orangutans are sent back to their cages. Orangutans weigh 250 lbs. and could easily hurt one another in these fights. They also may end up hurting an animal trainer. This is not entertainment, it is animal cruelty. Orangutans are endangered animals, and they belong in the wild, not in the boxing ring.
