Juwa had been tied up in a small dark room, where he had lived for at least four months while the military was looking for a buyer. He was starving and dehydrated, and completely lacking in comfort or care. The tether around his little body had cut right through his skin.
"He was ... attached to a rope, which was incrusted in his waist creating deep wounds and pain," Itsaso, a worker with the Centre de Rehabilitation des Primates de Lwiro (Lwiro Primates), told The Dodo.
The baby had also gone mad from the stress and begun to pull all the hair off his arms - which were almost white from the lack of sun. Itsaso described the scene as a "horrible situation."
