Baby Orangutan Found In Cardboard Box Is Now Unrecognizable

In the U.S. or the UK, it’s usually precious doggies and kitties that are unceremoniously tossed onto the side of the road. In the jungles of Borneo, where poaching is a regular practice, it’s baby orangutans that get the bum deal.

After their human owners realize just how challenging it can be to care for an infant ape, these super-intelligent babies are discarded like unwanted trash.

At just 5-months-old, little baby Gito had endured horrible conditions and was being kept in a box. After the novelty of owning an orangutan had worn off, Gito’s cruel owners promptly abandoned the poor little fella. Since orangutans are part of the illegal pet trade, they probably hoped that mother nature would take care of the rest, or at least get rid of the “evidence” that the wee little one had ever been taken captive.

Rescuers found him and thought his skin looked mummified because of his living conditions. When the team from International Animal Rescue organization first discovered the abandoned orangutan, his arms were folded in front of him like Egyptian royalty. Sadly, he hadn’t been treated like royalty, and instead appeared to have suffered a great deal during his short life.

Sadly, he hadn’t been treated like royalty, and instead appeared to have suffered a great deal during his short life.

Thankfully, they were 100% wrong! Although Gito was barely hanging on by a thread, he was still breathing, and desperately wanted to live to see all the happy “tomorrows” that the world was willing to give him. Once rescuers got a hold of him, Gito made one of the most unbelievable transformations we’ve ever seen.

Have a look the pictured below to know more about his transformation.
