Unlikely Animal Friends: The Orangutan and the Hound
When Surya the orangutan meets a hound dog by the river, the two carry on like long lost friends.
Thank you for removing this video! There's nothing cute about wild animals being exploited for someone's personal and financial gain. Well done, Nat Geo!
The video stops 1/2 way through with an error message - There is a problem loading your video. This has happened from different computers.
@Adrienne Miller What do you mean by being exploited? Maybe you need to do research about orangutans. Orangutans are an endangered species that are being rescued by organizations such as this once. The babies are orphaned because poachers kill and/or kidnap the babies for zoos, circuses, movie trainers, etc. These organizations teach the baby orangutans the skills needed to survive in the wild and breed them to increase the horrifically low population. This is actually a beautiful thing that is happening. If they are making money off of the amazing relationship between the organg and the hound dog, good for them. These organizations thrive off of sponsors and donations to continue their rescue mission.
This particular organisation featured does NOT rescue or rehabilitate. If it did so, it would be located in Sumatra/Borneo, not the US, where they've imported the animals. This guy has a list of black mark against this name when it come to animal treatment. Try looking at NGOs such the Centre for Orangutan Protection for what your referring to.
