Orangutan in Indonesia Rescued with 74 Air Rifle Pellets in Her Body

Recommended Posts

A mother orangutan and her baby, who suffered senseless cruelty at the hands of humans, were recently rescued by Indonesian authorities from a local park.

 

On Saturday, Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA) of Aceh reportedly evacuated the pair of Sumatran orangutans from a park in the Bunga Tanjung Village in Subulussalam’s sub-district Sultan Daulat.

 

While the mother survived, the younger one, aged around a month old, did not last long, according to the Straits Times.

 

Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, head of data and information at the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), shared heartbreaking photos of the great apes who were both severely injured from abuse.

 

Estimated to be 30 years old, the parent, named OU, sustained multiple injuries from sharp blades and 74 air rifle pellets that are found embedded in her body. Sadly, her child died eventually due to severe malnutrition and trauma.

 

According to Sapto Aji Prabowo, the Head of Aceh BKSDA, they immediately prepared with other agencies for a rescue upon receiving a report about the orangutans last week.

 

“OU was then taken to the Sibolangit rehabilitation center in North Sumatra. But the baby could not be saved,” Sapto was quoted as saying. He noted that the mother orangutan would be released into the wild once again after her treatment.

Humans are cruel. To justify their actions they will use all types of words. Culling, sports etc. Usually, nature has its own methods of balancing the population of the species living on this planet. Then come the human, with some theory makes a blunder and the entire eco-system goes crazy.

The multi million dollar question is who will be destroyed first? The Earth or the Human? If its the latter, the Earth in its entirety has a chance to recover and move forward.

Have you ever seen how nature takes care of things?

Its far less pretty than culling.

Not that this is culling.

As our closest living relatives, cruelty and the intentional killing of other great apes should be treated as murder.
