The unthinkable is being done to female orangutans in Indonesia. They are being captured and used in brothels as prostitutes, where they are tied down and repeatedly raped on a daily basis.
Just when you think things couldn't get much worse for the endangered orangutan, it does. 50,000 orangutans have already died in the last 2 decades as a result of deforestation- their natural habitat being replaced by palm oil plantations. They could be extinct by 2015.
They need protection- not exploitation brothels as prostitutes.
