Arrived at last.

Vehicles are a rare sight in places like this, let alone one with people wanting to rescue an orangutan! Hence the amount of local interest. COP is never aggressive or even critical at times like this. Most such people have no idea they are doing anything wrong or, how to take care of an orangutan. It is important to win the trust and respect of these people; if you don't there is every chance they will go and catch or buy another to replace the orangutan you have confiscated.

The rescues are only possible because of this truck, which was kindly provided by the trustees and supporters of Orangutan Appeal UK.
