Another palm oil orangutan victim.

In addition to my note above I can confirm "Degil" is a male orangutan of about four years age. Most of his four years will have been spent held captive and alone in a cage by a local villager who would have brought him as a pet. By some miracle Digil survived the electrocution, a two hour drive to a vet and the subsequent amputation of his right arm.
