Orangutan Gets His Broken Leg Fixed

Puyul the 40-year-old orangutan broke his leg when he fell out of a tree.

Conservationists found him and brought him to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Program (SOCP) and treated him.

He was put on fluids, x-rayed and even had a random air rifle pellet removed from his body.

Indonesia has lost about half of its rain forests in the last 50 years.

That means less trees and maybe that means less branches to grab and that would mean more falling monkeys.

So there's another reason to save the rain forests.

Can't wait til Puyul is up and running again!
