Rescuers thought when they found an orangutan that he was dead. Motionless, the little orangutan, Gito, had been placed in a urine-soaked cardboard box, leaving to die. He had been living just on condensed milk, he was really suffering severely malnourishment.
Gito looked ‘mummified’ and his situation was really neglect and ruthlessness, according to rescuers from International Animal Rescue (IAR). The group wrote on its web site that even the most strengthened members of the team were surprised when they saw Gito’s state.
Fortunately, Gito is finally getting back to the life, by IAR staff’s efforts, that all animals must have. He now can use the jungle gym, jump, and also staring right into the cam. IAR shared some pictures for Gito and wrote that they are delighted to share these pictures which show how Gito has actually come because they rescue him. His skin is looking so much better and he becomes healthier daily.
The vets are very glad with his progress, and it is hoped that he will be back into the wild in a day. He is also coming to be more energetic.
At least, Gito recovered the life that he should have. Gito’s recovery story shows the people just how much good groups like IAR can do in rescuing animals.
