    Sri Lankan tourist attacked by orangutan
    August 29, 2015, 6:59 pm



    A Sri Lankan national, now domiciled in New Zealand, was hospitalized after being bitten on the knee by an orangutan while trekking in North Sumatra, the Jakarta Post reported.

    The attack may have been carried out by 38-year-old ‘Minah’, an orangutan who has attacked a number of foreign tourists in the Bukit Lawang resort area.

    The victim was identified as Binula Wickramarachchi, 27, by Riswan Bangun, manager of the Sumatra Orangutan Observation Centre in Bukit Lawang.

    He said the tourist was currently in a satisfactory condition at the Colombia Hospital in Medan.

    Details of the encounter are scarce, but it is understood the victim was bitten on his right knee.

    Wickramarachchi is originally from Sri Lanka but is currently living in Auckland.

    Sri Lankan tourist attacked by orangutan Empty Life In Captivity, In One Photograph

    More on Oragutans....

    Life In Captivity, In One Photograph

    Sri Lankan tourist attacked by orangutan 980x

    We asked Chris Draper, program manager for captive wild animals at the Born Free Foundation in the U.K., to comment on the photograph.

    "It is hard to say too much without the wider context and knowledge of the enclosure," he told The Dodo. "[But] the picture presents a striking contrast between the zoo visitors and the orangutan: a moment's interest and comedy for the visitors and a lifetime's captivity for the orangutan."

    In the wild, Draper explains, orangutans are almost exclusively arboreal — "finding safety and comfort in the trees." Yet, he continues, "here we see a situation where endless streams of visitors may file past at eye level with this intelligent and sensitive ape."

    Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered, with no more than 7,300 left in the wild.

    "It is difficult to imagine how exhibiting the orangutan in this manner is helping to conserve wild orangutans," Draper notes. "Will the visitors become ardent conservationists or even reconsider their use of palm oil — the production of which is a significant contributor to the destruction of orangutan habitat — having briefly laughed at an ape in captivity?"

    "Something tells me," he says, "it is unlikely."
