Here is the harrowing moment an orangutan tries to defend its forest by grabbing at a digger. The animal is hoping to save its trees from loggers believed to be located in the Ketapang Regency on the island of Borneo.
The orangutan attempts to grab on to the digger as it is lifted into the air but falls before it can latch onto the vehicle.
Footage shows the vulnerable beast walk across a fallen tree and leans towards the massive machinery.
A man, who is a member of the Orangutan Protection Unit for the International Animal Rescue non-profit organization, can be seen in the video creeping under the animal with a dart gun.
He, fortunately, captures the creature and then moves it to safety. The project has an orangutan rescue and rehabilitation center in Ketapang, West Borneo.
