They say that every living thing in this world deserves some respect. Just like Mother Earth, though there are lots of people who tries to scalp all of its natural resources, there are still people who are active on making a stand against it. Same with Animals, Several animal protection groups are spreading the word about condemning animal cruelty and also stopping the abuse for the poor animals. Even if you are not an animal lover, this news about a village that's known to be a "prostitute village" takes pride on capturing Orangutans to use them as "Sex Slaves" to the locals and foreign visitors who are willing to pay a hefty amount of money to use the innocent orangutans to satisfy their unusual lust.
Meet Pony, an Orangutan in Borneo who was luckily got rescued years ago from a "prostitute village", the village got known for its rampant exploitation taking place every day in the expense of the innocent orangutans. Pony had been held as a sex slave in a village, she was tied by her ankle to a wall on a mattress. Her body was shaved every day to give her that appealing look to attract men who came to pay to have sex with her. The rescue for Pony was not an easy ride since whenever anyone tries to save her, they were threatened by villagers with poison-tipped sticks and other weapons.
