Orangutan Fights Tourist for Her Backpack in Borneo
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — An orangutan at a wildlife sanctuary fought with a French tourist for her backpack, leaving her bruised and scratched, an official said Tuesday.
Nordon, who managed to keep her backpack, told the New Straits Times newspaper that she thought orangutans were "friendly, cuddly creatures."
I can't begin to imagine what she'd think if she ever ran into a grizzly bear while vacationing in Yellowstone. "I thought bears just liked to steal picnic baskets."
What's with the primate crime spree going on, mugging orangutans and burglaring baboons? They are evolving, or degenerating, like humans.
