The 48 Thai orangutans are back home! – Day 1

FOUR AND A HALF YEARS after the first complaint was made about illegally imported orangutans at several places including the Bangkok safari park, exactly THREE YEARS after the raid on the park where over one hundred orangutan babies were found, TWO YEARS after we proofed with DNA tests that these orangutans were indeed born in the jungles of Borneo, they were finally send home! These orangutans were trained to perform shows for tourists although they were born in the wild. These orangutans were giving boxing shows for a thousand people at a time in Bangkok instead of foraging in the trees of Kalimantan. These orangutans were tortured to entertain human beings… But it is over now!
