Employees of the Taru Jurug Zoo in Indonesia are now considering moving Tori, one of the orangutans here, in isolation, in order to keep it from smoking the cigarettes visitors usually throw in its enclosure.
The animal is a smoker for ten years now, all thanks to its natural inclination to mimic human behavior and to the benevolence of tourists who encouraged it in pursuing this pass time activity.
Together with the Center for Orangutan Protection, the Taru Jurug Zoo's management succeeded in finding a new home for Tori and her partner.
From now on, they are to live on a small island located in the middle of the zoo's lake, which means that people will no longer be able to give them cigarettes.
Interestingly enough, it seems that Tori's parents were also smokers.
