Another 'prisioner' at deaths door.

When I took the photo of the cages above, laid out behind me in stifling heat and humidity was this Siamang gibbon. I was told it had been in a fight with another gibbon and was bitten. The guy in charge had to telephone a vet a hundred miles away for advice. How any treatment was administered I dread to think. I suspect this gibbon would have died soon after.
