Shirley the cigarette smoking orangutan

Malaysia has a very strong economy. Sadly, the same cannot be said about the countries zoos where animals are kept in tiny, often dirty enclosures, with little to no attention and care. One of the animals that has gained attention in these zoos is Shirley the Orangutan, who has somehow picked up a nasty nicotine addiction.

The primate often walks towards tourists, begging for cigarettes. Tourists mostly are happy to oblige, if only to catch a glimpse of an orangutan smoking cigarettes. Apparently, the staff at the zoo pays little to no heed to the habit Shirley has picked up.
