Budi The Baby Ape Thriving After Tough Start

Budi, the baby orangutan rescued after being kept for months in a chicken cage in West Borneo, has made a remarkable recovery.

Budi was found critically ill in December in the village of Kubing, Ketapang, neglected and starving in his small dark cage.

His owner had fed him entirely on condensed milk and eventually contacted an animal welfare charity to give him up.

When the charity, International Animal Rescue, took Budi to their rescue centre, he was in extreme pain, unable to move, sit up or even lift his limbs, which were damaged by malnutrition.

But in the past few months, the one-year-old has learned how to walk, climb and even to chew his own food.
