Two Long-tailed macaques rescued againMay 3, 2011
Happily we were able to confiscate to Long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis) again in the area of Nyalindung. Sunday 1st of May we went to 4 owners where we knew of that they were keeping Macaques. 2 of the owners were willing to handing over the macaques.
The other is a male with the name Kis he is around 4 years old. His condition is good. Unfortunately his has stereotype behavior: biting his self so badly that he has a few very nasty wounds! We have him now in our clinic where we treating his wounds twice a day. After the wounds are health good we will move him to our quarantine where also Engkis and Wience sitting on the moment. If we have the results of the blood tests, and TBC tests and this is negative we will move the 3 of them to our socialization cages and make a group of them.
From the other two owners that we visit, one of them was not at home so we will go there soon again. The other was at home but didn’t want to give the Macaque to us. Also to this man we will go back. The macaque is very aggressive and is sitting at a chain next to the road, so it is very dangers for the people who live there.
Story will be continued…..
