Use of Orangutans in advertising campaign

Orangutan Appeal UK do not support Meteor's use of orangutans in their advertising campaign - and in fact strongly disagree with such tactics.

Meteor have recently (October 05) adopted one of our orphan orangutans and made a small donation to our Appeal, but without disclosing who they were or what they were involved in - this in our view is a DEPLORABLE TACTIC. We have since refunded their donation.

We wish to make it known that we fully support the action being taken by the Captive Animals Protection Society to discourage such activities and sincerely hope they are successful in having Meteors advert withdrawn.
