‘Monkey Mask’ Controversy

These shocking pictures reveal how monkeys are tortured and abused as they are forced to perform on the streets of Indonesia

The animals are chained up by the neck and forced to walk on stilts to entertain passers-by in the city of Medan, the fourth-largest in the country. 

In the distressing pictures the monkeys are brought out to wear bizarre costumes, grotesque face masks and ride miniature motorcycles around the streets. 

Behind-the-scenes images also reveal the animals’ horrible living conditions, kept in dark cages with the chains still around their necks.

The animals’ handlers are seen treating them roughly, picking them up by their hands and feet and leaving them lying on the dirty ground.
