Meet Tori, The Smoking Orangutan [VIDEO]
Meet Tori, she is a 15 year old Orangutan who has a bad habit of smoking cigarettes at a Indonesian Zoo for the past decade. Zoo officials announced they are moving her away from the public in an attempt to quit smoking or sending her to rehab.
If you’re asking how did she start smoking? Visitors to the zoo would throw her lit cigarettes into her cage, that she would pick up and start smoking. Tori would indicate she wanted a cigarette by holding two fingers to her mouth and would throw a fit if she didn’t get one. She would imitate people by holding the cigarette between her fingers and flicking ashes as well.
Tori and her male companion have been moved to a island inside the zoo away from visitors. All primates are said to be in good health.
