Indonesian city trying toend masked monkey shows
JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia’scapital is getting rid of the monkeybusiness.Security forces are conducting raidsto rescue macaques used in maskedmonkey performances on Jakarta’sstreets.The order came from Jakarta Gov.Joko Widodo, better known as“Jokowi,” who wants all roadsidemonkey performances — known hereas topeng monyet — gone by nextyear.He said that besides improving pub-lic order and stopping animal abuse,the move is aimed at preventing dis-eases carried by the monkeys.The city government will buy backall monkeys used as street buskers forabout $90 and shelter them at a 2.5-acre preserve at Jakarta’s RagunanZoo. The handlers and caretakers willbe provided vocational training tohelp ﬁnd new jobs.Animal rights groups have longcampaigned for a ban on the shows,which often involve monkeys wearingplastic baby doll heads on their faces.They say the monkeys are hung fromchains for long periods to train themto walk on their hind legs likehumans. Their teeth are pulled so theycan’t bite, and they are tortured toremain obedient. The monkeys areoften outﬁtted in dresses and cowboyhats and forced to carry parasols or ridetiny bikes.Femke den Haas of the JakartaAnimal Aid Network welcomed thedecision, saying at least 22 monkeyshave been rescued since the sweepbegan last week and quarantined forhealth issues. She estimated about 350animals work as street performers inJakarta, adding they are no longer ableto live with other primates in zoos andcannot defend themselves in the wild.In 2011, backed by the city adminis-tration, the group rescued 40 monkeysused in shows, which are often per-formed when trafﬁc is backed up atJakarta’s notoriously congested inter-sections. Many suffered illnesses,including tuberculosis and hepatitis.Many of the macaques are trained at aslum area in eastern Jakarta, knownlocally as “monkey village.” Atrainedmacaque can be sold for up to $135.Sarinah, 37, who owns 13 monkeysused in the daily street shows, said theban has hurt her livelihood. Seven of her macaques have been conﬁscated inrecent raids.
