- Pony was around six years old when she was rescued from the brothel in 2003
- Her captors shaved her almost daily and made her wear makeup and perfume
- The endangered Bornean orangutan was also forced to perform sex acts
- She now lives in a sanctuary with seven other orangutans and is recovering
- Her carers say she will never be released into the wild as she wouldn't survive
The horrifying story of an orangutan used in the Indonesian sex trade has been retold by the conservationists who rescued her.
Pony, an endangered Bornean orangutan, was discovered in February 2003 in a brothel village at Kareng Pangi, Central Kalimantan chained to a wall and lying on a mattress.
She had been ruthlessly and abhorrently exploited by local palm oil farmers who would come to the village and pay £2 to have sex with her.
Having been snatched from her mother when she was a baby, her captors treated Pony extremely harshly - shaving her every two days and forcing her to wear perfume and makeup.
She was even taught to perform sex acts on demand for her customers.
