Traumatized Baby Orangutan Who Is Lonely Hugs Herself


A baby orangutan, who was separated from her family, reportedly can´t stop hugging herself. International Animal Rescue received the ape from an Indonesian man who illegally kept Joss as a pet for two years.

The animal rescue and rehabilitation organization says "it’s likely that little Joss saw her mother being brutally killed before she was snatched from the forest and sold as a pet".

It is believed that Joss hugs herself constantly as a source of physical comfort. "It is extremely distressing to watch because it must reflect the mental and emotional trauma little Joss is suffering," the IAR says.
