Holy smoke! Orangutan to kick habit


Zoo officials in Indonesia have launched a campaign to get an orangutan to stop smoking.

Tori, a five-year-old male orangutan (pictured) was yesterday happily puffing away at Taru Jurug Zoo in Solo, central Java.

He developed the habit after getting cigarettes from visitors, but zoo officials have now banned people from offering him cigarettes in an effort to help Tori kick the habit.
