JAKARTA (Reuters) – A Bornean orangutan, a critically endangered species, has been found stabbed to death in Indonesia’s Central Kalimantan province, a conservation official said on Tuesday. The great ape was found floating in a river and had been dead for at least two days, said Adib Gunawan, head of the Natural Resources Conservation Agency in central Kalimantan. “We found that it was stabbed multiple times using a sharp tool,” Mr Gunawan said. “We are still investigating the case.” The World Wildlife Fund estimates there are only 104,700 Bornean orangutans left in the world.
