Orangutan Prostitution: Another Reason to Avoid Palm Oil

We all know that palm oil is leading to the death and extinction of Orangutans through deforestation, but did you know that while Orangutan’s are seen as pests to palm oil farmers, they are beaten, buried alive, killed, infants shipped around the world and sold as pets and their mothers if not murdered are taken to brothels and used as sex slaves.
The story of Pony, the Orangutan prostitute, has been circling the internet thanks to animal advocates. Please share her story and urge others to help by signing the following petitions. Thank you.
Pony’s Story:
Pony, once a free animal was tied up in a brothel, shaved to be more “appealing” and used as a sex slave. For years animal advocates tried to free her but as such a huge money maker in the village her captives would threaten her rescuers with poison-tipped spears and other weapons. It took years of donations to pay the police to go to the brothel with guns in order to free her.
"There is no way that something as beautiful and innocent as an orangutan, could ever have evolved into man." ~ Lone Droscher-Neilsen
