The extent that humans can go for their greed is shocking. They can jeopardize lives and exploit innocents ones without batting an eye if they are earning profit from it. Greed is the cause of so many problems in the world, from human trafficking, modern slavery and global warming to illegal animal trade. The poor orangutan in the following video was a victim of this. This clip will break your heart.
This baby orangutan lives in the Samutprakran Crocodile Farm and Zoo in Thailand. As you can see, he is in a very sorry state. He has been tied to the ground using chains that aren’t even a few feet long. All day, he stays in the same spot as an attraction to the visitors there. You can see him extending his arm and trying to grab on to someone, perhaps to escape.
His handler treats him quite roughly too. Such baby animals are usually stolen from their mothers, or taken after the mother is killed. Instead of learning how to survive and socialize, they are forced to interact like this. This is hard for them, as they are solitary animals. Just watching this clip is torturous, so you can only imagine what the poor guy is going through every day.
You might feel at a loss about how to help these creatures. You can start by not going to any attraction that promises wild animal shows or interactions. Refuse to buy anything made from their fur, bones or other body parts. When the demands stop, so do the killing and exploitation.
