Ban Orangutan Boxing for Entertainment

PETITION: Ban Orangutan Boxing for Entertainment

TARGET: Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha of Thailand

In Thailand, orangutans are being forced in the boxing ring to fight one another for human entertainment. The animals are dressed in boxing gear and placed in a ring to resemble a boxing match with each other. Animal lovers are in awe and appalled at such an exploitation of animals for the amusement of humans. Since 2005, over 22,000 apes have been sold, killed while being hunted or died in captivity as a part of the illegal trade of primates that still continues to this day. Huge profits are made selling illegally captured primates to zoos and other attractions around the world . Winners are awarded food and other rewards but ultimately both primates return to the dark cells where they are illegally kept. It is time to stop this disgusting display of animal brutality; orangutan boxing certainly stands as the most shameful symptom of the illegal primate trade. Orangutans are highly intelligent and sensitive animals and share 97 percent of their DNA with humans. Orangutans do not belong in a ring where they are dressed up and made to fight- they are not boxing because they want to, they’re boxing because they’re afraid not to.

I didn't even know this was a thing...a lot of things aren't good or smart or make sense in this world and this is for sure without any doubt one of them. I mean they are being forced to fight one another? cock fighting and dog fighting was a thing...now they are doing it with apes...this is just insane. I mean I don't think there is anything more to say except I hope people are aware of how bad this is and do something. If they weren't aware then what would change...abuse is abuse and this sort of picture is just insane in a lot of ways. Something needs to be done now if not sooner. And now would be preferred if that was a "time thing" that could take place. A lot of things should be "now things" and it goes without saying. I hope that someone reads this soon and see's what's happening because it's down right messed up and we know this, either way people have to be aware or this world stays in a bad shape and that's not good.
