“Indonesian police have arrested a couple who made meatballs from the flesh of protected monkeys, an animal conservation group said on Wednesday.

The pair poached dozens of rare Javan langurs, also known as silver-leaf monkeys, from Baluran National Park in the east of Java island, according to a statement released by Indonesia-based animal protection group ProFauna.
“Police found 30 kilograms (65 pounds) meat estimated to come from 20 – 25 individuals, two rifles and a live langur,” the statement said.”
Indonesia has laws against killing protected wildlife, but the laws are rarely enforced. I hope there’s a PETA chapter in Jakarta, this fine organization is ruthless in harassing creeps who abuse and kill animals.
I wish Hannibal Lecter would make meatballs out of the dastardly duo who killed the monkeys.
I hate meatballs, I can’t think of anything more likely to make me vomit than being served a plate of steaming monkey meatballs.
Where are the animal rights groups in Indonesia? Stupid question I know, in a Muslim country where women are treated like chattel, nobody is going to speak out in defense of animals.
