At Safari World zoo, in Thailand, orangutans are forced into a show where they "box" one another as well as performing other stressful tricks. Not only is this an incomprehensible form of entertainment, it is a dangerous and cruel treatment of these majestic animals.
Orangutans naturally live in an arboreal situation, swinging from trees and walking on all fours. Forcing them to stand on their feet to "box" is a painful and unnatural way for them to behave.
Animals should not be held in captivity and forced to perform for tourists' entertainment. This is a cruel exploitation of these beautiful animals.
