Poppycock: Orangutan or Orang Hutan?
Ridiculous and crazy.That exactly the words I would describe this most nonsensical idea mooted by some pea-brained sycophant.
Reported in the Borneo Post today that the new Deputy Minister of Tourism James Dawos Mamit has agreed with the PM's request to send some orangutans to Kuala Lumpur for eco-tourism.I wonder which orang hutan angkat kaki the PM to come up with such ridiculous idea.
Don't they know it is cruel to remove these animals from their natural habitat.They are also very sensitive to confinement outside their natural homes.If tourists want to see them they should come to Sabah, Sarawak or Indonesia.West Malaysia is not orangutan's country and most tourists know that.
Is this some grand plan to steal our eco-tourism materials so tourists need not come to Sabah to see these primates? They can see them in Kuala Lumpur?
I am glad out Tourism Minister Masidi Manjun stood his ground that no orangutan from Sabah is go to KL for eco-tourism purposes.
Maybe, Sarawak can send if they wish.After all the minister that agree to the request is from Sarawak.
If it is true, I hope the Prime Minister would give up this most ridiculous idea.
