My heart sank as I read this blog and felt the pain that the mother Orang endured. It is disgusting that people can be so cruel. The poor babe survives but lives without her mother for evermore.
A mother orangutan with her little baby clinging to her approached a village in Borneo. She was looking for food her her baby as her home had been encroached on first by the villagers and then stripped bare by palm oil companies.
A group of villagers spotted her, began throwing rocks at her and beating her with sticks.
A male orang nearby saw what was happening and tried to defend the already weakened and possibly already injured mother. He was chased away.
The villagers continued to beat the mother until she fainted. Then they tied her with ropes and tried to pull her daughter away. She rallied for a moment and tried to rescue her baby so the villagers dragged her to a pool of water and submerged her head until she passed out.
Then they threw her into a cage.
They tossed the baby in with her.
