A guy crossing a zoo’s concrete barrier got caught in the clutches of an orangutan, who almost broke his leg after tearing it through the zoo’s enclosure
A poor fellow visiting a zoo was abused and almost terribly injured during a trip to a zoo when an orangutan grabbed him and almost broke his leg.
The giant primate clung to the boy’s leg and refused to let go, yanking at the man who was trying to escape the giant orange monkey’s clutches.
Local Hasan Arifin is said to have gotten a little too close to the cage at Kasang Kulim Zoo in Riau, Indonesia, when an orangutan named Tina took a chance and clung to his leg.
The man is said to have ignored a nearby warning sign saying not to get too close.
Local media reported that the guy climbed over a barrier separating visitors from primates, got close to the animal and climbed over the cement fence that separated them.
The zoo’s manager believes that Arifin kicked the orangutan Tina, who he says is normally docile.
Desrizal, Manager of Kasang Kulim Zoo, said: “What happened on Monday afternoon, the visitor jumped into the guardrail of the orangutan cage to record a video without the official’s permission.
“The visitor broke the rules by jumping over the guardrail and kicking the orangutan.”
His rule-breaking led to some horrific consequences as Tina the orangutan latched onto the guy through the cage, holding onto his shirt and refusing to let him go when the guy tried to back away.
The orangutan then grabbed the man’s leg, grabbed Arifin with both hands and refused to let go, eventually twisting the leg 90 degrees as Arifin twisted his body to avoid breaking it.
Arifin apologized for violating zoo rules, saying, “I apologize to Kasang Kulim Zoo for crossing the fence and I apologize for the viral video.”
Neither Tina nor Arifin were injured after the incident, LADBible reported.
