Gito, a 5-month-old infant, was being kept as a pet by the leader of a Borneo village, who had paid less than $30 for the tiny ape. Gito's mother had almost certainly been killed so her little baby could be taken and sold for a profit.
When IAR found him, he had been placed in a cardboard box and left in the sun to die. He had been fed only condensed milk, and the box was was soaked through with urine. The small bundle looked so lifeless that rescuers initially thought he was dead.
