Indonesia: Zoo Keeper Accused of Impregnating Female Orangutan

Surabaya | A zoo keeper at Indonesia’s Surabaya zoo has been arrested and charged with sexual assault on a number of animals and even, strangely enough, of impregnating a female orangutan, reports the Kalimantan Press this morning.

The 38-year-old zoo keeper was filmed in full action by a series of hidden cameras put in place by the zoo’s security officials after doubts emerged about the man’s devious actions towards the zoo animals.

“Some animals seemed sexually aroused when it was time to feed them” explains Akhiroel Yahya, employee of the zoo for 14 years.

“But what made us most suspicious was when we discovered Marylin, our oldest orangutan, was pregnant. She has never been in contact with any other orangutans because of her aggressive nature, so it didn’t make any sense” he acknowledges, visibly troubled by the news.

A “total mystery”

The zoo officials admit it took them sometime before being able to explain what had actually happened.

“At first, we clearly did not comprehend what had happened,” admits the zoo’s director, Abdoel Hakim. “Marilyn has been secluded for the past 10 years, it was a total mystery,” he acknowledges.

“It is only when we placed several hidden cameras that we learned the horrible truth” he admits, visibly angered by the whole situation.

Consensual acts of “kindness”

When confronted by local authorities, the offender denied any wrong doing on his part.

“He said everything he had done was consensual,” explains police chief Abubakar Jaar. “He said he loved each and everyone of the animals and was very sorry he had impregnated the orangutan,” he told local reporters.

“He says he did not know orangutans could get pregnant from humans,” he added.

A rare “genetic predisposition”

If many experts believe the man could not have impregnated the female orangutan, some specialists claim a rare genetic predisposition could explain the unexplainable.


Paleobiologist Bachtiar Pado Panghulu of the University of Jakarta claims orangutan DNA is extremely close to human DNA

“Contrary to popular belief, the orangutan species is much closer to the human species than chimpanzees. We share practically the same DNA code, with only minute differences, which could explain the orangutan falling pregnant from this man” explains Paleobiologist Bachtiar Pado Panghulu, of the University of Jakarta.

“Particularly in Indonesia, the genetic profile of some of the population is extremely close to the orangutan species, leading us to believe they’re might have been a common ancestor to both species only a few hundred thousand years ago,” he admits.

Surabaya zoo, Indonesia’s largest zoo, repeatedly made headlines in 2012 because of its scandalous treatment of its animals after a former employee of the zoo claimed that over 50 animals had died at the zoo during the three months since he had been hired.

    Wonder if she gave him the clap? I read somewhere that’s how man got VD from screwing sheep. Now the sand types are replacing women hoes with sheep and camels in the hoe house. Guess it takes all kinds but leave me out. Saw an article where there was a cross human / ape kid in Asia, or Africa He was made a national treasure. All I can say is that is very hard up. She must have liked it since she was known to be aggressive but let him.

    Now you’ll have something new to study or see how it goes but I don’t think its possible that can happen no matter the percentage that monkey is to humans

    I think those guys shouldn’t be so hard on the guy over him screwing that monkey because i bet you that was the best pole it had in years being stuck lock in a zoo like that i feel more sorry for it being locked up in a zoo than what the guy did to it he did hurt it any probably made the poor thing feel better if anything just think it about it.

    And I can clearly see why those other animals would be more sexually active at feeding time because the zoo keeper has them locked up away from other male animals that they might wanna mate with. some of you people act like you’ve got no damn smart brains it all

    If people were in the same place as those animals and not getting no sex as they should they would enjoy any penis they could get as that monkey enjoyed it.

    I bet the monkey was less stressed out after getting some sex even though it wasn’t from another monkey she probably felt better to be honest with you no telling how long its been locked up without a mate
