orangutan 500x312 Smoking Orangutan to Be Pulled from Zoo picture

A 15-year-old orangutan at the Taru Jurug Zoo in Indonesia catches the attention of many because of her unique vice for smoking cigarettes.

However, because most visitors continued to throw lit cigarettes into her cage, the primate’s health has continuously been deteriorating.

As a result, zoo personnel plan to relocate Tori, along with three more of her kind, away from the public, to preserve her life.

Tori’s smoking may serve as amusement for others, but the Indonesian government can’t just let her life be at risk.

Other Indonesian zoos are also being watched closely by the government because of the rising number of animal deaths in the country.
