PETALING JAYA: A local animal rights group has lodged a police report over videos of baby long-tailed macaques being tortured that are being offered for sale on a Telegram group.
The report was filed by Hak Asasi Hidupan Liar Malaysia (Hidup) at the Shah Alam district police headquarters following a tip-off from US-based animal welfare group Lady Freethinker and UK’s Action for Primates,
The videos are being sold in a Telegram group called “Monkey Haters”.
“It is such a brutal form of torture that should be investigated immediately by the police,” Hidup’s Dr Kartini Farah Abdul Rahim was quoted as saying by news portal Free Malaysia Today on Friday (Jan 20).
The footage depicted many despicable forms of torture, which includes, dismembering, mutilation, burning, boiling and skinning of monkeys while still alive.
“The monkeys were shrieking and screaming. During the process, the perpetrators take pictures and videos and post them on Telegram,” lawyer Rajesh Nagarajan was quoted as saying.

One thought on “Malaysia: Animal Rights Group Lodge Police Report Over Baby Macaques Being Tortured and Offered For Sale.”
Not a surprise from a country like Malaysia. My suggestion is for the overpopulated areas in Asia (all of it) use their surplus population for experiments. It would help reduce millions of unnecessary humans.
