“Sorry, she’s not blonde”

Horny orangutan likes wrong species

A sexually confused orangutan in the Netherlands is frustrating his keepers by refusing to mate with female orangutans – because he is only sexually interested in blonde, tattooed humans.

Apenheul Primate Park hoped the orangutan, named Sibu, would become its breeding male when he arrived two years ago – but it seems orangutans aren’t his type.

‘He chases them, or ignores them, but he doesn’t do what he should do,’ said a spokeswoman for the park.

Instead, Sibu fancies his female keepers, especially blondes. This is fairly common for orangutans, the spokeswoman said, but Sibu has an additional fetish for tattoos.

It’s thought this preference harks back to a heavily tattooed keeper who reared him.

‘Orangutans have special interests in special subjects. Sibu happens to like tattoos,’ she said.

The park hasn’t given up on Sibu, 31. He showed an amorous interest in a female orangutan while previously living in England, and keepers hope he will find love when reunited with her in a new enclosure in Chester.

    What is the problem, the zoo can’t afford to buy him blondie tattooed hooker once a while or what? I don’t understand.
    They keep poor MALE ape in a cages, they should pay for bitches of *his* choice, obviously. Its not like he is a human male, he is not going to shut up and do what his bitches tell him to do… err, I mean he don’t like unshaved fat ugly oragnutan females, he prefers white trash in blonde – and those are cheap and easy to get by the dozens, so really, what is the problem? Where is PETA?!
