The heartbreaking tale of “Mikey” the orphaned Orangutan promised help by Rebecca Rodriguez!

Rebecca Rodriguez of ONE ANIMAL WORLD aka ANIMAL TIME TV aka ANIMAL HOUSE INTERNATIONAL LLC, started a GoFundMe fundraiser for the “starving sun bears of Bandung Zoo” in conjunction with a petition to close down Bandung Zoo in Indonesia organized by her accomplice Poop Holmes. The petition was started first. The GFM fundraiser followed.  It was claimed that the funds raised would go to directly help/benefit the sun bears of Bandung Zoo, who they claimed were starving, eating their own feaces and one was lactating but there were no cubs. Apparently the situation of the sun bears was dire and critical according to Rodriguez and her accomplice Holmes.  Yet both of these individuals were specifically told the Sun Bears were not starving, nor had they every been starving!

Rebecca flew to Indonesia with her team mates but was denied entry and access to Bandung Zoo.  On her return to the USA, Rebecca “updated” her fundraiser and stated the “campaign has evolved” and one of the “new beneficiaries” was now a non-identifiable entity – “ANIMALS OF INDONESIA”.

What is MIKAIL the orphaned Orangutan if nothing than an “ANIMAL OF INDONESIA” in desperate need!??  Furthermore Mikey was specifically named as a beneficiary of the campaign!

Well who and what is Mikail the Orangutan in Sumatra? 

Scorpion Wildlife Trade Monitoring Group – an organization formed to identify, arrest and prosecute wildlife traffickers in Indonesia – knew about Mikail in December 2016 and produced a  sting video about Mikail and his deplorable conditions.  This information was subsequently passed on to Ms Rodriguez.

However,  we the “general public”  first heard about “Mikey” in April 2017 when a plea was made by Ms Rodriguez via her first fundraiser for the sun bears of Bandung Zoo, to donate towards helping him – Mikey.

Mentioning “helping Mikey” in the original GoFundMe campaign, promising to build him a new enclosure!

 

What is of critical importance is to note that at this juncture Ms Rodriguez had already raised around $45,000 USD!!!!!!  Mikail’s circumstances were CRITICAL and VERY DIRE.  His mother had been attacked and brutally murdered, leaving “Mikey” contained and cramped within a tiny cage with no enrichment and no real life.  The most obvious question is thus why would Ms Rodriguez not dip into the $45,000 USD already raised to build a new enclosure for Mikey and provide him with the veterinary care, food, enrichment and life he so desperately needed?

If you know anything about Orangutans you will know they are highly sociable, extremely intelligent little beings.  Mikail was already suffering the death of his mother!  Orangutans are known to DIE from stress and loneliness! 

Suddenly, Ms Rodriguez then created a seperate, additional fundraiser for “Mikey” on 29 September 2017 and asked the public to donate towards a new enclosure and better life for this innocent being!

Confusingly, she had already asked for donations in April 2017 and the public kindly donated.  Now here was another fundraiser for the same purpose – for MIKAIL! How much had the public already donated and contributed to Mikey?  ZERO WAS DONATED.

RR STILL HAS MIKAILS FUNDRAISER ON HER PRIVATE FB PAGE
Rebecca Rodriguez had already utilized Mikey’s pictures in the original fundraiser and received donations.  Then she started a 2nd fundraiser and asked for donations.  Her goal was $7000 yet she only actually pledged $375! And in the end, he STILL got NOTHING!

This time though the designated target amount was a grand total of $7,000 USD for a new enclosure!!!! Wouldn’t you consider this fraudulent and dishonest?

29 september fund raiser for mikand knew about him in april recipient is rr

although states wanicare will receive money and oversee enclosure all donations go directly to rebecca
Rebecca Rodriguez behind the 2nd fundraiser “for” Mikey!

Subsequently we found out, via Scorpion Wildlife Trade Monitoring Group’s statement against Ms Rodriguez  that she had only pledged $375 towards helping Mikey!  Why then, the fundraiser for R7,000 USD?  This is all very distressing and confusing.  Since a new enclosure would cost around $3000 – $4000 why was Rodriguez fundraising for $7000?  Is that to cover film production crew fees?

Scorpion Wildlife Trade Monitoring Group disassociating from Rodriguez’s fraudulent campaigns and acknowledging that she only pledged $375 out of $7000 for Mikey AND they instructed her to do the right thing and donate for the Sun Bears of Bandung Zoo.  Highly questionable behavior and fraudulent and misleading!
