The barbaric spectacle with Thailand’s boxing orangutans

In Thailand, orangutans are forced to box.

On the outskirts of Bangkok, there is a popular tourist attraction that organizes boxing matches between orangutans.
The best known is certainly Safari World, a huge amusement park and zoo.

A swarm of crowds and tourists interested in this violent “sport” gather at Safari World to watch orangutans punch in a boxing match.

The barbaric spectacle lasts about half an hour.

Then winners and losers are brought back to their dark cages. And the next animals fight in the ring.

Orangutans, the acutely endangered species of the great apes – these precious creatures are abused in Asia for amusement in kickboxing shows.

Thailand’s government officially banned this serious violation of animal welfare in 2004.
But money is still being made with the undignified monkey fun.
The great apes are scared and intimidated.

Often they are tortured with electric shocks, ill-treated with lighted cigarettes, or beaten if they do not follow training instructions.

The orangutans are required to wear boxing gloves and shorts and are trained to hit each other for entertainment
Between the “fighting rounds”, a female orangutan enters the scene, wearing a bikini on which the number of rounds is displayed.
