Background

According to a local resident, he saw an orangutan eating young oil palm leaves in his field and in an attempt to scare it away, he released his hunting dogs and the orangutan ran away leaving her terrified and tiny baby alone. We have seen the results of hunting dogs attacks on orangutans and think it's more likely that Jumbo's mother was killed. Orangutan mother's will protect their babies to the death, curling up around them in an attempt to protect them. The man then kept Jumbo for a month before handing him over to BOS.

 Fun Fact

Cheeky Jumbo likes to pull practical jokes on babysitters by tugging at the lanjung bags they carry and causing the fruit inside to spill out.
