Latest Coup From The Myrtle Beach Circus

Latest Coup From The Myrtle Beach Circus

It was just the other day that I posted a link on Doc Antle and his visit to congress. Well he has done it again. This is a direct kick of 'sand into the eyes' of all the Orangutan groups who have strived to stop them being used in advertising. I don't believe that the so called 'Rare Species Fund' (part of the so called 'The Insitute for Greatly Endangered and Rare Species') contributes anything to Orangutan conservation in the wild. It would be rather like a charity accepting blood money. Can anyone tell me different? Can anyone show proof?
They claim to be supporting "hundreds of orphaned Orangutans". They show a photograph of four baby Orangutans which "were born at our reserve from captive bred parents". Then can anyone tell me why the hell they are not with their parents? They should be in the same way that 'Suriya' who you will see in the advert below should be with his parents or at least other Orangutans in an enclosure and not parading around in supermarkets.
Wasn't it nice to know that he was not alone though, because all his Orangutan friends were in the motorhome outside. This gave me a sort sickly feeling in the back of my throat. Having a 'Palm Oil' message at the end of the video does not make it all okay.

Anyway see what you think, watch the video. I think it is all very clever. Another coup for Doc Antle and his Myrtle Beach Circus, but clever does not make it right.
