  Following the rescue of an orangutan who was forced to become a sex slave and sleep with men on a daily basis, the animal has now undergone rehabilitation. The Bornean orangutan named, Pony, was reportedly found in February 2003 inside a darkened room in the village of Kareng Pangi, Central Kalimantan chained to a wall and lying on a mattress. The animal who was separated from her mother as a baby was sexually abused for years by local palm oil farmers who pay £2 each to have sex with her.  Mail Online reports that the owner of the brothel, who kept her in the dark room, was extremely harsh with her and forced her to wear makeup and perfume every day. The Orangutan was also taught how to perform sex acts on demand for her customers. Due to the harsh treatment, whenever the brothel madam visited her in a rescue centre, she would ‘scream and defecate’ continually.  Director of the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation UK, Michelle Desilets, SAID when Pony was rescued; ”My friend Lone [Droscher-Nielson], who rescued Pony, had to bring in 30 army officers when she was seized. ‘Afterwards, the madam visited Pony on a monthly arrangement to reduce the risk of retribution. ‘But every time Pony saw her she would scream and defecate again and again. We were forced to increase security and put a stop to the visits.’ Lone Droscher-Nielson, who who worked with some others to rescue Pony in 2003, told the Sun: ‘When I found that she was used for prostitution and not just a pet I was horrified.’Perhaps in my naivety I had never thought it humanly possible to do such a thing to an animal.’   Michelle Desilets, director of the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, told VICE in 2007: ‘They [the farm workers] would come in especially for [her]. ‘You could choose a human if you preferred, but it was a novelty for many of the men to have sex with an orangutan.’Michelle continued sating; ‘She was being used as a sex slave,’ Michelle added, ‘She was probably about six or seven years old when we rescued her, but she had been held captive by the madam for a long time.’  He continued sayinf 35 policemen armed with AK-47s  had to go and rescue Pony. From the brothel, she was taken to a nearby orangutan sanctuary run by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation. She recovered slowly and male carers had to be introduced to her slowly. Lone continued, ‘She didn’t seem to be afraid of them anymore and she was happy with any company she could have. Eventually, she was moved to one of the islands.’  Pony, after 15-years from her ordeal,is now in good health 15 years on from her ordeal, and now lives in an enclosure in Nyaru Menteng Rehabilitation Centre with seven other orangutans. Photo Credit: BOS
