So now there's this. A video going viral of a dude who threw a lit cigarette into the Orangutan at a zoo. Of course the bored Orangutan picked up and started to smoke it...which threw animal rights activists into a tizzy and now over a million people have signed a change.org petition to shut the zoo down because of it. Check out the video below.

I don't condone throwing smokes to monkeys so they can take a drag but what else are ya supposed to do when you're locked up in the zoo all day?
