**Monkey Abuse Organization Exposed by BBC Report**
*[By Park Yeon-jung, NewsPenguin Journalist]*
The BBC has uncovered a widespread monkey abuse organization that stretches from Indonesia to the United States. In a recent report, the British media outlet revealed the shocking extent of this criminal network.
The investigation began when an undercover reporter from the BBC infiltrated one of the main organizations involved in monkey abuse. What they discovered was deeply disturbing.
According to the BBC, customers from around the world, including the United States and the United Kingdom, were outsourcing their sadistic desires to contractors in Asian countries, specifically Indonesia. These contractors would carry out acts of torture or even kill baby monkeys upon demand, sharing videos of their cruel actions through the messaging app Telegram.
The problem of monkey abuse first gained traction on YouTube. Animal lover Lucy Kapetanich became alarmed at the number of videos showing monkeys being mistreated, dressed as babies, and forced to walk upright. Despite reporting these videos to YouTube, no action was taken, and she soon stumbled upon a video depicting gruesome monkey abuse. Outraged, Kapetanich spoke out about the horrific treatment experienced by a monkey named Minnie, who appeared frequently in these videos. According to the BBC, Minnie was subjected to a year of torture, causing severe stress and even physical tics.
The alarming part is that there were people who watched these videos and encouraged further violence. Commenters expressed sickening desires, such as boiling a baby monkey or splitting it in half. This disturbing content not only perpetuated the abuse but also caught the attention of British animal rights activists.
Thankfully, Minnie was eventually rescued by the police and taken to a shelter. However, the damage had already been done – her tail and jaw were injured, and all of her baby teeth were broken.
Authorities are now pursuing the individuals involved in this sickening trade, with multiple arrests already made. At least 20 people worldwide are under investigation, including three women in the UK and an Oregon man who was charged recently. One particularly notorious figure, Mike McCartney, also known as the “Torture King,” confessed to organizing these acts of cruelty and distributing videos depicting various torture methods. McCartney emphasized the tainted nature of the profits made from such animal abuse, comparing them to drug money.
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is actively investigating two additional individuals linked to this vile ring. Meanwhile, in Indonesia, two people directly involved in the torture, Asep Yadi Nurul Hikmah and M Ajis Rasjana, have been arrested and prosecuted. Asep Yadi Nurul Hikmah received a three-year prison sentence for animal cruelty and the illegal sale of protected species, while M Ajis Rasjana was sentenced to eight months.
Sarah Kite, the founder of Action for Primates, a nonprofit primate advocacy group, expressed her dismay at the circulation of abuse videos on public platforms like Facebook. She emphasized the need for significant punishments for every individual involved in this heinous crime.
It is crucial to remain vigilant against such atrocities and hold those responsible accountable. The exposure of this monkey abuse organization serves as a stark reminder of the importance of animal rights and the need to eradicate cruelty in all its forms.

According to the BBC, customers around the world, including the United States and the United Kingdom, have commissioned contractors in Asian countries, such as Indonesia, to perform advisory services. On demand, the contractors tortured or killed the baby monkey and distributed the video via Telegram.
Monkey abuse first started on YouTube.
Lucy Kapetanich, who likes chimpanzee videos, said that according to YouTube’s algorithm, she saw monkeys dressed as babies and monkeys being forced to walk upright. He reported the video as he believed it violated YouTube’s Terms of Service, but no action was taken on the platform. Soon after, he came across a video of monkey abuse on YouTube. “It’s so cruel, I can’t even talk about it,” she said.
In addition, British animal rights activists announced that they were encountering abused material through YouTube’s algorithm.

Lucy Capetanich talked about the monkey ‘Mini’, who appeared most frequently in abuse videos. “A man grabbed Minnie and two other little monkeys by the tail and slammed them against the wall. Then they burst into high-pitched laughter. It was disgusting,” he said. According to the BBC, Minnie is said to have been tortured for a year. Some monkeys even developed tics as a result of stress.
People watched the video and showed reactions such as ‘torture is more serious’ and ‘fun’, and made unreasonable demands such as ‘I want to see you put him in hot water’ and ‘buy a baby monkey and split it in half’.
Fortunately, Minnie was rescued by the police and settled in a shelter, but she already had cuts to her tail and jaw, and all her baby teeth were broken.

The police are currently chasing the buyer and several arrests have already been made. At least 20 people are currently under investigation worldwide, including three women living in the UK who were arrested and released last year after being investigated, and an Oregon man who was charged last week.
Mike McCartney, nicknamed the “Torture King,” who once distributed torture videos, told the BBC, “The torturers took a poll beforehand asking, ‘Do you want to torture them with a hammer? , pliers or a screwdriver?'” he said. “(The video that was produced) was the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” he admitted.
In addition to Mike McCartney, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is currently investigating two other people.
DHS said, “Three out of five key figures in this monkey abuse investigation are these people.”
Meanwhile, the Indonesian police arrested two people, Asep Yadi Nurul Hikmah and M Ajis Rasjana, who directly participated in the monkey torture. Asep Yadinurul Hikma was accused of torturing animals and selling protected species and was sentenced to three years in prison, while M. Ajis Rasjana was sentenced to eight months.
Sarah Kite, founder of Action for Primates, a non-profit primate advocacy group, said: “We’ve seen videos of abuse circulating on public platforms like Facebook.” Every individual needs a strong punishment,” he stressed.
