Stolen Baby Orangutan Has An Emotional Reunion With Her Mum And It’s Too Cute

Stolen Baby Orangutan Has An Emotional Reunion With Her Mum And It’s Too Cute

Pictures showing the moment an orangutan and her baby were emotionally reunited after the little one was stolen by a dominant male have been released - and they are just too adorable.

After giving birth to Baby Clarita on Salat Island - which is used by Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOSF) as a pre-release island for orangutans who have received care - technicians suddenly noticed that mum Clara wasn't with her offspring.

Instead, they discovered that Clarita was being 'cared for' by Rizki, a 14-year-old male orangutan, and his friends. The team realised they needed to work fast to safely retrieve the little one, especially as she had a severe rash thought to be caused by rangas sap.

Luckily the rescue team was successful, and Clara and Clarita can be seen hugging one another in these adorable photos as they're reunited at Nyaru Menteng Rehabilitation Centre, Kalimantan, Borneo.

A spokesperson said: "Clarita was immediately taken to our clinic for intensive care and observation.

"At the time, Clara seemed to be hiding out on Salat, as if she was trying to avoid the other orangutans on the island - in particular, Rizki, who had taken her daughter.

"She reappeared in early August that year and was quickly taken to the Nyaru Menteng clinic to be reunited with baby Clarita.

"The BOS Foundation released Clara and Clarita to the Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park, in Central Kalimantan on the island of Borneo, some months later."

Well done to the whole team at the BOS Foundation - we do love a happy ending!
