* Warning * Very Sad Pictures included
Do you remember 2 weeks ago when a monkey was on the loose in Palmerah? :
Baron was a pet monkey that was living a sad life on a chain until one day he managed to escape.His escape caused for a lot of commotion in the neighborhood and suddenly the entire neighborhood was on his back trying to catch him.
Being highly stressed scared and frustrated, he bit several people in the process. Lots of people, police, media etc all gathered at the location trying to either catch him or to get a glimpse of the drama that was going on.
Baron was shot in the head, thigh and body. Ones caught, he was beaten badly.
Baron was brought to Dinas Perternakan to be observed for 2 weeks to make sure he has no rabies. Thankfully JAAN was contacted by Dinas Perternakanand they asked if JAAN could provide care and treatment for Baron.
Baron is in bad shape. He is badly dehydrated, malnourished (has not eaten for the past 2 weeks!!), infected wounds and possibly tetanus,he is in severe pain due to the beatings and the bullets that are still stuck in his head and body.
Our JAAN vet, Drh Dani, will focus on stabilizing him the upcoming days ahead and ones Baron is stable the bullets will be removed.
Although his condition is critical, it is really clear that Baron is fighting to stay alive. We hope that with his high spirit and all the medical care and love he will be getting , he will pull through. His treatment for tetanus and all the other medical treatments he needs including the operation to remove the bullets is going to be very costly.

Monkeys are NOT pets!! They live a miserable life in captivity, especially caged or chained. Monkeys carry a lot of diseases with them that can be transfered to humans (or the other way around), which is another good reason NOT to have a monkey as a pet!
Please dont EVER buy wild animals, even if its out of pity. The selling of wildlife animals can only stop if YOU dont buy! You buy means that you are supporting this business.
*Thank you Dinas Perternakan for getting in touch with us and for letting us try to safe this beautiful monkey.
