Visitors to the zoo were shocked because the orangutan pulled his shirt and grabbed his leg when he crossed the fence to take pictures.
Video circulating on social media shows a tourist at Kasang Kulim Zoo, Rian, Indonesia being grabbed by an orangutan, nearly breaking his leg.
|Wanting to get close to the orangutan to take pictures, the man received a bitter ending|
An orangutan named Tina stretched out her long arms to pull the tourist, making the man extremely scared. When he saw the visitor standing too close to the cage door, the orangutan reached out and grabbed his shirt. Then Tina reached out and grabbed her leg very tightly.
It is known that a man named Hasan Arifin deliberately climbed over the fence because he wanted to get close to the orangutan’s cage to take pictures.
Hasan Arifin ignored the warning sign not to approach aggressive pets. He had climbed over the cement fence, approaching the barn.
Desrizal, the zookeeper, said the orangutan Tina is quite docile, rarely attacking people if not provoked. To ensure the safety of visitors, the zoo has posted signs and fences outside the cages.
According to Desrizal, the male tourist jumped over the fence and kicked the orangutan, making the animal angry.
Desrizal said: “A tourist jumped off the fence, approached the orangutan’s cage to take photos and videos without the permission of the security guard. The male tourist violated safety rules, even kicked the orangutan, inciting it”.
Hasan Arifin’s action made the orangutan angry, without hesitation reaching forward to grab his shirt, struggling for a while. The man panicked and shouted, someone jumped in to help. The animal had no intention of releasing Hasan Arifin. The orangutan decided to let go of the shirt and pull on Hasan Arifin’s leg.
The incident ended when zoo staff arrived and Hasan Arifin was released from the orangutan’s hold. Fortunately, the male tourist was only slightly injured and Tina was not injured.
Later, Hasan Arifin apologized to the zoo manager for breaking the rules. He shared that he received a valuable lesson about following the rules when visiting wild animals.
Orangutans are the only large tailless primate in Asia, living mainly in Borneo and Sumatra, Indonesia. Conservationists say the number of species is declining due to threatened habitat loss.
