Popular Chimpanzee Boxing Show in Bangkok

Once an popular show in Bangkok, Orangutan boxing Sow, was a big attraction, but it got forbidden in 2006. According to Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, orangutans were illegally smuggled from the Malaysian woods. They stayed in dark cages and were trained for the show. Some people say animals were abused. You must know that this wild species can be found only in Malaysia and Indonesia rainforests. Here are the photos how the show looked like. This orangutans look pretty fine, but I am not sure that the training was animal friendly. Gad to hear that there is someone who is thinking about this creatures.
