A baby orangutan has been rescued after spending six months chained by the neck to a narrow plank of wood in a family's kitchen. See National story NNAPE; The 18-month-old ape, named Bonika, was found chained so tightly around the neck that she was barely able to move from side to side, and was left stranded on the plank. But the International Animal Rescue (IAR) Orangutan Centre in Ketapang, West Borneo, heard about the orangutan and rushed to its aid 200km away. According to Bapak Hendrigus, the man who captured Bonika, he had been keeping her as a family pet since June when he claimed to have found her in the middle of a palm oil plantation. He was on his way to work at a rubber tree plantation when he said he spotted the little orangutan alone and looking thin, so he caught her and brought her home to live with his family. He says the ape fed on rice, sugar cane, biscuits, bread, mineral water and baby milk.
