Thai Zoo Halts Orangutan Boxing Matches

POSTED: 7:32 am EDT August 4, 2004
BANGKOK, Thailand -- Police in Thailand have ordered a zoo to halt its orangutan kickboxing exhibitions.

Safari World animal park near Bangkok has been putting on shows for tourists featuring orangutans trained to perform traditional Thai kickboxing. A zoo spokeswoman calls the display unique.

Police said Wednesday that they've confiscated 69 of the endangered creatures, including two who had been doing the boxing. A police spokesman said the orangutans were imported illegally and were being kept in violation of international law.

The head of an animal rescue center said the zoo shouldn't have been using orangutans for the amusement of tourists in the first place. He said it's "very degrading for an animal of that intelligence."

Okay, so that isn't such a moral thing to do. I'm still against KFC though.
