A FRENCH tourist had her clothes pulled off her by an Orangutan in Malaysia.

She was taking pictures of the animal in a wildlife centre when it charged at her and tried to steal her bag. She put up a fight and it soon gave up and moved on to her clothes. It inadvertently bit her when it tried to undo her trousers using its teeth but once it had them it left her alone. She sustained many cuts and bruises during the fight, and insisted she had not provoked it.
