The facts took place in a zoo in Kasang Kulim, Indonesia. The video has gone viral on social media.
We can see a visitor who seems to have entered a prohibited area and approached a little too close to the cage of an orangutan. The animal then decides to grab the man by the leg and refuses to let go. “No no no !” can we hear him scream.
According to several Indonesian media, the visitor in question would have climbed a barrier in order to get closer to the animal.
The man was not injured but was strongly reprimanded by park staff.
“The visitor wanted to make a video, create content, without permission. He broke through the security barrier. It was silly, stupid behavior. This put him and others in great danger. I reminded the staff to make sure that no visitor has the opportunity to do it again”commented the manager of the zoo to the British site L.A.D. Bible.
