Kind gesture of a wild orangutan, lending a helping hand to a man seen stuck in mud is melting the hearts of netizens. The great ape, who lives in a protected conservation forest area in Borneo, was seen leaning forward assisting a man, who stood in the muddy river searching for snakes by offering its outstretched arm.
The striking images were taken by photographer Anil Prabhakar, from Indonesia, who had been on a safari with his friends when he spotted the touching scene. Prabhakar later found that the man worked for Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, a non-profit organisation aimed at protecting the endangered species. It was found that the worker had been clearing away snakes in an effort to guard the orangutans when he was interrupted by the inquisitive ape.
Prabhakar adds that “The orangutan came to the banks and was watching the man what he was doing. It then came closer and offered its hand to help the man which he refused as it’s a wild animal”.
The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation is an Indonesian non-profit organization, which has around 400 members currently taking care of almost 650 orangutans. In a related incident, a new video had recently surfaced in which an orangutan can be seen taking care of three tiger babies. The video was shared by a user on October 20 and has gone viral with 332 Retweets1,197 Likes on micro-blogging site Twitter. Meanwhile, Netizens have reacted to the video with all praise for the orangutan.
With these kind of activities, the five sensed creatures are posing a huge threat to the six sensed creatures by developing the so called “humanitarian characteristics”. Be careful humans.. Now its your call to protect your qualities.
