What on earth is this being posted on the Animal Planet for? This is not a video for animal lovers. It shows two orphaned animals in a VERY small cage together. One seems annoyed and the other seems to need a suitable mother figure. This saddens and disgusts me to find this here. Please explain or amend or both!

They appear to be in a public park/playground area. The cage was probably used for transportation. That video is adorable and neither animal appears to be in bad health or abused in any way. Just enjoy it for what it is.

This is horrible. I can only imagine the set up for this indulgent video. I wish our planet really WAS *Animal Planet* and we humans would become extinct. They were not put here for our amusement and I'm surprised A.P. would allow the behavior depicted in the video onto their website.

This just made me laugh hysterically...especially the song...thank you! (and Mr/Mrs "Sadly"...neither the pig nor the monkey seem bothered. Praise God they have been rescued and appear to be well cared for! )

@Human Planet - Humans use, enslave, and eat animals all across the world. They've done so for pretty much all human history. In fact, the only ones who don't are those cultures rich enough to not have to use animals (i.e, like ours). Do you always respond that way to cultures different from yours? Wish for their complete extinction?

To all those saying this is a horrible video. Perhaps if you researched before getting on your high horse you would have noticed that both animals were orphaned and had bonded together.
Some people just insist on being incensed.

Wow you people are takin this way too far. THere is no abuse, there is no stagin. Clearly the monkey got up there himself. Your going to freak out on that? save your animal activisiam for the real abusers, the dog fights, starvation, mutation, abuse. NOt somthin cute and harmless. Jeez, thats pretty sad, someone can find it so bad. HUh....

Funny thing is, that isn't a pig. That's a tapir.

@Jaibyrd - While baby lowland tapirs also have a mottled pattern like the animal shown in this video, so do the babies of many species of wild pigs. And lowland tapir babies have a much darker brown background coloration with white mottling.
Here are wild boar piglets: http://orbisnaturejourneys.com/wild_boar_2_piglets.jpg
Here are lowland tapir babies: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef01156fc32c78970b-800wi
You can clearly see that the animal in the video is a pig, not a tapir.

That is so cute. It seems as if they have adopted each other.

You people are amazing the monkey and the pig both look bonded i did research and they say they're bonded so u guys gotta be quiet.

I think they do seem to enjoy each other. I do not see any signs of the pig trying to throw off the monkey.
The song certainly fits the video!
