Flak for orangutan kickboxing

Animal activists criticise weak laws for show pitting orangutans against each other.

    In Thailand, where kickboxing is a popular spectator sport, an unusual show pitting orangutans against each other, has drawn criticism from animal rights activists.

    Organisers say what they are doing is legal but activists blame lax laws – which police admit to – for that situation.
