Punish Man Accused of Selling Baby Orangutan


Target: The State Prosecutor of North Sumatra, Indonesia

Goal: Convict man for allegedly attempting to illegally sell a baby orangutan.

The North Sumatra State Prosecutor and the Wildlife Conservation Society announced that they have arrested a man who was allegedly attempting to illegally sell a baby orangutan. The orangutan is between 6 and 12 months old, and is allegedly worth $1,300 on the local market. The man has also been reported selling hornbill beaks, tiger skins, and tiger fangs.

The man, identified only as “VHN,” is a part of a greater black market that includes local hunters and collectors networking throughout Indonesia. The man has been found to be a top trader in the market with a great amount of connectivity, and is known for selling a variety of animals. He completed most of his business through Facebook and BlackBerry Messenger.

The Indonesian rainforests have become an unsafe place for many wildlife animals. They are the site of illicit trafficking and deforestation, which puts many wildlife animals in danger. This arrest demonstrates the efforts the Indonesian government and the Wildlife Conservation Society are putting into protecting wildlife, and to eliminate illicit trafficking.

If convicted, the man will face up to five years in prison, with a fine of $7,600. Please support the efforts being made to convict this man, and ultimately put a stop to illicit wildlife trafficking.


Dear State Prosecutor,

The necessary protection of wildlife is at an all-time high, and there is not a better time to act than now. A man, identified as “VHN,” is allegedly a top wildlife trader and deserves to be punished for attempting to sell a baby orangutan. Not only does the baby orangutan deserve justice, but all the animals he has successfully sold do as well.

You have my support in convicting this man, and I urge you to prosecute him to the best of your abilities. Stopping this man will help save countless other animals.

  1. Jail the vile and evil bastard. Money hungry monster.

  2. These guys should rot in hell and never be freed again.
    What about stealing one of their family members and selling them???? How would they like that???? No merci for this kind of so-called humans!!!!!

  3. Throw this unconscionable idiot in jail for a very long time — such acts can NEVER be repeated!

    We MUST protect our animals!

  4. I have a good idea that where ever this dealer got the orangutan they killed its mother. That’s generally what happens especially to grab the baby because they know that no one can handle the adult. I expect the orangutans to go extinct in the future because of the forests being turned into palm oil farms.
