Remember Taymur, the baby orangutan we helped repatriate from Kuwait in April?
Taymur was illegally traded and transported to Kuwait, then later discovered by Kuwaiti police following a traffic accident involving the person who was holding him illegally as a pet. Taymur was with the suspect, who was under the influence of narcotics, at the time of the incident, and was subsequently secured by the Kuwaiti authorities before being returned to Indonesia.
Upon his arrival at Soekarno-Hatta airport in Jakarta, Taymur was taken to the Taman Safari Indonesia quarantine facility to undergo a thorough medical examination and DNA testing. He is now ready to be transferred to a rehabilitation center.
