Meet Poco

Africa, Animals

Poco was born around 1980 and, sadly, he was abused for the first 9 years of his life. He lived in a tiny cage suspended above a garage, where he sat day after day. His purpose was to attract potential customers. The cage was so small he could only sit down or stand on two legs, never on all four (which is natural for chimps). Poco lives at a animal sanctuary now and even though his carers encourage him to walk on all four legs to retain muscle mass, to this day he still stands a lot on two legs. Shameful how humans can be so inhumane. Location: Sweetwater Sanctuary Mt Kenya, Kenya
