Villagers trying to smoke an orangutan out of a fruit tree where he was sheltering accidentally set him on fire.
The distressed animal had been hiding in the leaves above the village of Lower Wajok in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, because its habitat had been disturbed, wildlife experts said.
Why are we outraged that this happened when these things happen to Orangutan’s daily? By that I mean habitat loss etc.
