When villagers in West Borneo alerted officials about a baby orangutan being kept illegally as a pet, International Animal Rescue teamed up with the Wildlife Rescue Unit of the Natural Resources Conservation Agency to rescue the little guy.

They ended up finding the baby, named Bomban, living inhumanely in a tiny box. After giving him a medical evaluation and finding pellets in his thigh, Bomban was transported to IAR’s Orangutan Rescue and Conservation Centre. We can all breathe a sigh of relief knowing this sweet little guy is in good hands!
