Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo has made the decision to prohibit masked monkey shows, (topeng monyet), by next year- making them illegal across the city of Jakarta, Indonesia.

Masked street monkeys in Jakarta, are forced to wear bizarre costumes and give street performances as their owners collect money from spectators. The emaciated long-tailed macaque monkeys are made to wear doll masks, wigs, and clothes and perform human tasks such as riding bikes, rocking horses and scooters. Many are brutally trained to walk upright by being hung upside down, or having their hands tied behind their backs. In the first two weeks of being trained to perform cruel circus activities, countless monkeys suffer incredibly and die.

Thank the Governor of Jakarta for ending the life of torture and begging of masked, begging street monkeys.
