A Kiwi is in hospital after being attacked by an Orangutan in Indonesia
Binula Wickramarachchi, 27, from New Zealand, was among a group of tourists who were trekking in the Bukit Lawang resort area in Langkat regency, North Sumatra when they were attacked by the ape, The Jakarta Post reported.
Manager of the Sumatra Orang-utan Observation Centre in Bukit Lawang, Riswan Bangun said Mr Wickramarachchi was currently being treated at the Colombia Hospital in Medan.
"The victim was bitten on his right knee," Mr Riswan told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.
Mr Bangun said the attack might have been committed by a 38-year-old wild orang-utan named Minah who was earlier kept as a pet by a resident.
