People get animals as pets and have no idea what they getting into. My family lived in Borneo for 5 yrs. Poachers would kill mama oragutangs to get the babies to sell as pets in Singapore/around the world for 10k. The babies then grow up and become 3x stronger than a man and cannot be handled. They get dropped the zoo, killed, or left in parks. Its sad and stupid. It is amazing how much the babies have the same mannerisms and expressions as human babies. I guess people get the wrong impression. No wonder they are going extinct.
