Girl, 6, who's best friends with an orangutan

3 posts in this topic

Some childhood playmates turn out to be friends for life. For others, there comes a time when they simply outgrow each other.

For most of their six years on the planet, Emily Bland and Rishi the orangutan have been an unlikely double act – enjoying picnics, games and the occasional rough and tumble.

But now, they are being forced to, well, grow apart, because Rishi’s keepers think he will soon be too big and powerful to play with his human friend.

How cute and sad. The photo of the backs of the two walking together is adorable, but I guess orangutans are amazingly powerful as adults. I wouldn't chance it as a parent. Even a friendly mistake could mean big trouble for a child.

They are smart but wouldn't want my kid playing with one.
