In Indonesia, over 3000 monkeys are taken from their mothers, chained up and starved just to serve as entertainment. The monkeys ride bikes and perform tricks for tourists. The monkeys are forced to perform on the streets and are abused.
When they are not performing, they are beaten, chained, starved, and their hands are tied behind their backs.
It normally takes a monkey about six months for them to submit and start obeying their owners.
Meet Dodo, who was recently rescued from the dancing monkey life. By exposing what really goes on with the so-called dancing monkey, maybe humans will not only stop paying to see such displays and become informed enough to want to stop this kind of cruelty.
The government has laws with strong consequences for such abusive actions.
