Fights take place at Safari World Theme Park in Bangkok, Thailand. There are even orangutan ring girls, who look almost like human ring girls. 6 years ago the company, that arranges the fights was banned, but now it's operating again. Some people think it's cruel, other think it's funny.

Organization "Borneo Orangutan Survival" says that those animals are illegally brought from Indonesia, they can harm each other during the fights and after being rescued they can't live a normal life because they fear almost everything.

It’s important to understand that orangutans are endangered. Wild species can be found only in Malaysia and Indonesia rainforests.

I thought you should know the truth behind orangutan shows like this.

These orangutans were stolen from Indonesia and Malaysia by smugglers when they were babies. Their mothers were murdered as the forests of Kalimantan and Sumatra were destroyed.

Once in Thailand (or Cambodia or Laos, etc), the orangutans are badly abused. They are forced to live in small cages made of concrete and steel bars. They are beaten until they learn to perform on cue and many have been killed in the process. They are given no enrichment and have no access to grass, trees or anything natural.

Due to proximity to humans, many have even caught human diseases such as Tuberculosis and Hepatitis. These poor creatures will never be allowed to return to the forest. So what will happen when they get too big to perform? (Adult orangutans will NOT perform on cue!) They will simply disappear... which is to say they will be killed. This is a crime that must be stopped...

Orangutan desperately need our help. Visit the Orangutan Outreach website to learn how YOU can make a difference! www.redapes.org
