Pony, an endangered Bornean orangutan, was found in February 2003 in a brothel village at Kareng Pangi, Central Kalimantan anchored to a wall and lying on a mattress. She had been ruthlessly abused by local palm oil farmers who might go to the town and pay £2 (Rs. 180) to have sex with her. She was rescued by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation in February 2013. Pony was brought to Nyaru Menteng in a horrible condition. Her hair had been totally shaved off and she was covered in mosquito bites. She was scared of humans. As indicated by the individuals who saved her, Pony was stolen from her mum as a baby and was kept as a sex slave. Her body was shaved each other day, abandoning her skin irritated, covered in wounds and prone to mosquito bites – and she was taught, how to perform sex acts. Solitary Droscher-Nielson, who was a part of the group who saved Pony in 2003, disclosed to reports: ‘When I found that she was used for prostitution and not just a pet I was horrified. ‘Perhaps in my naivety I had never thought it humanly possible to do such a thing to an animal.’ It took the vets at the office some time to take her back to being a animal and after some time she began to associate with other orangutans. As indicated by BOSF, it has taken over 10 years for Pony to recover from the incredible brutality she faced amid bondage. Indeed, even after 10 years, Pony has not been completely ready to coordinate into wild. Different tries to influence her prepared for an actual existence in the wild done to have ended up being unsuccessful as she got different diseases and wounds – she even had torn muscles on her fingers and toes and needed to under go physiotherapy. In spite of this, they trust that Pony can one day be introduced with a pre-release sanctuary island with other unreleasable orangutans like her.
