Ed Wray, a photographer for the Associated Press based in Southeast Asia, has released a series of photos of performing monkeys in Jakarta, Indonesia, that he calls Monkey Town.
Wray said he “looked at this not so much as a story about cruelty to animals, though it certainly is, but as a look at the sometimes terrible things people are forced to do in extreme poverty. It’s a very sad situation.”

This is so sad and awful…
It is sad that in this world there is enough food to feed all of us, yet so many go hungry. It is equally sad that the animals become the lowest on the totem pole and are being treated even worse than the poorest of humans.
