World: Ban Masked, Begging Street Monkeys in Indonesia

Masked street monkeys in Jakarta, Indonesia are forced to wear bizarre costumes and give street performances as their owners collect money from spectators.
The emaciated long-tailed macaque monkeys are made to wear doll masks, wigs, and clothes and perform human tasks such as riding bikes, rocking horses and scooters.
Many are brutally trained to walk upright by being hung upside down, or having their hands tied behind their backs.
