Stratford vet tries to save orangutan shot 130 times

Film footage has been released showing the moment a vet tried to save the life of an orangutan that had been shot 130 times.

Paul Ramos, from Stratford-upon-Avon, was in Borneo to see the work of animal charities. The injured orangutan was found clinging to a branch in a river.

The wildlife vet said he wanted to raise awareness about the plight of the great ape.
