A baby orangutan who was left deformed after being crammed into a chicken coop for most of his short life is recovering after being rescued by a UK animal charity. Tiny Budi was squashed into a chicken coop in Ketapang, West Borneo and fed only condensed milk for ten months, almost immediately after being born. Due to lack of nutrition and a small space in which to move, the malnourished orangutan was unable to grow properly and his bones became malformed causing his limbs to swell and bend. Poor Budi was on the brink of death when he was recused by animal charity, International Animal Rescue (IAR), which are now nursing the youngster back to health. Since highlighting his plight, IAR has received more than 50,000 in donations and Budi, who was too weak to even open his mouth at first is now eating and responding well to treatment.
