A 15-year old orangutan in an Indonesian zoo will now have to slog it out without her favorite habit after the zookeeper decided to move her to a small island at the zoo site, away from visitors who throw her lit cigarette butts which she goes on to smoke.
Tori asks the visitors for a smoke by holding up two fingers to her mouth. When no cigarette is available, she reportedly gets angry and starts throwing things around.
AdvertisementZookeepers revealed that she has been smoking continuously for the last 10 years and will soon undergo tests to determine how much her smoking habit has damaged her health.
Until Tori is removed to a more secluded place, volunteers will be guarding her cage and zookeepers will put up mesh netting to stop visitors from throwing cigarette butts.
