Bon Bon, the little orang-utan hidden in a suitcase back in freedom
The little Bon Bon is back free. Today the authorities for the protection of the environment in Bali have prepared a large plate of fruit for the young orang-utan before you transfer it to Sumatra to put it back into nature. The puppy was found in march 2019 inside of a basket, the property of the Russian Andrei Zhestkov, 27 years old, and then sentenced for his crime. The man was arrested at Denpasar airport in Indonesia while attempting to embark with the small primate two years, sedated, and locked away inside the baggage. The Russian tried even selling the small as a newborn baby, using it as a gimmick milk, baby bottles and blankets in case they were stopped. The traffic of orang-utans is a problem very serious for a species already seriously threatened and endangered species that suffer from poaching, the disappearance of habitats linked to deforestation for palm oil and the climate crisis.

A keeper holds a baby orangutan named Bon Bon at the Ngurah Rai International Airport on the Indonesian island of Bali. Bon Bon, who was drugged by a Russian trafficker in a failed bid to smuggle him off the island, will be released back into the wild. ? ??Sonny Tumbelaka, @afpphoto? ? #bali #orangutan #wildlife #nature

A post shared from USA TODAY (@usatoday) on the date of:

The association Save The Orangutan estimate recorded in the south-east asia, especially in Malaysia and Borneo, about 1000 cases of orangutans being hunted each year, often to sell the cubs to the zoo or to commerciarli as pets in areas such as the united Arab Emirates or the Middle East. A few years ago on the border between Thailand and Myanmar, another trafficker was stopped with two puppies in a suitcase and in 2015 other 14 specimens, all recovered after being sold illegally, were released into the wild. Protected by several laws on the preservation of this animal that lives in the forests of the rainforest in malaysia and indonesia is today the primate, the most traded in the world.
