Orangutan Was Locked Up Most Of Her Life, Rescuers Heartbroken To See Her Bones

There is an orangutan inside that makeshift box sitting on those tires. The rescue workers who arrived knew she was in there. Once they opened the crate, the poor creature didn’t look at anyone.

She was terrified.

She kept her head down, and she was holding on to a dirty scrap of cloth like is was a security blanket. The orangutan, Amy, was 7-years-old and already had given up on life.

Just look. She is in a box, and she is chained up – who wouldn’t give up hope? The crate wasn’t even big enough for Amy to stand up in.
