The police in Indonesia have arrested and charged a zoo keeper for sexual assault on animals, as well as impregnating a female orangutan.
According to Kalimantan press, hidden cameras put in place by the zoo security officials had filmed the 38-year-old zoo keeper in full action.
The cameras were fixed, after doubts emerged about the man’s devious actions towards the zoo animals.
The zoo’s director, Abdoel Hakim said “At first, we clearly did not comprehend what had happened,Marilyn has been secluded for the past 10 years, it was a total mystery”.
“It is only when we placed several hidden cameras that we learned the horrible truth” he admits, visibly angered by the whole situation.”
“But what made us most suspicious was when we discovered Marylin, our oldest orangutan, was pregnant. She has never been in contact with any other orangutans because of her aggressive nature, so it didn’t make any sense” he acknowledges, visibly troubled by the news.”
Also, employee of the zoo for 14 years said “Some animals seemed sexually aroused when it was time to feed them”.
Confirming the incident, the police chief, Abubakar Jaar said “When confronted by local authorities, the offender denied any wrong doing on his part, saying everything he had done was consensual, He said he loved each and everyone of the animals and was very sorry he had impregnated the orangutan”.
“He says he did not know orangutans could get pregnant from humans,” he added.
Some specialists however, claim a rare genetic predisposition could explain the unexplainable, if many experts believe the man could not have impregnated the female orangutan.
