In this video, we see a lone orangutan confronting the humans who were wrecking his home with a bulldozer. The orangutan loses his mind when he sees his beautiful home being torn to shreds.

He desperately charges at the bulldozer and tries to fight off the machine, but he ends up falling from the tree as the claw hits him.

As if this wasn’t brutal enough, the merciless workers then proceed to shoo away the orangutan so that they can continue the destruction.

While the fate of the orangutan from this video is unknown, this clip has managed to stir the conscience of millions of people worldwide.

Activists claim that many illegal land clearing operations have been covertly carried out in this government protected area, causing many orangutans to face mounting uncertainties about their survival.

Experts claim that the increase in the demand for palm oil is a major cause behind the human invasion of these protected orangutan forests.
