Melaka Zoo: Stop Abuse on Sumatran Orangutan

Melaka Zoo, 2 hours south of capital Kuala Lumpur is now infamous for their treatment of orangutans.

The picture of this petition is of a beautiful male Sumatran orangutan, who has been locked up in his barren cage for at least 12 months now. Absolutely cruel and heartless, and this is condoned by the Malaysian wildlife authorities, Perhilitan!

No one knows if he ever gets a chance to go out in the boring enclosure in front, to breathe fresh air, to feel rain on his back, to feel freedom from the hell he is going through day in, day out. This poor orangutan is now showing signs of mental illness. Check out a video of his condition here:

Other orangutans have also suffered at the hands of irresponsible management at this zoo, and last year the misery of Melaka Zoo orangutans was highlighted by newspapers in the UK, including the Daily Mirror, here:
