Cherang Hangus residents live in fear of roaming tiger
MACHANG: Over 500 residents in Cherang Hangus here live in fear of a roaming tiger which has been devouring their livestocks over the past week.
Cherang Hangus Village Development and Security Committee chairman Awang Mustapa said the tiger had devoured three cattles belonging to the residents in the village so far.
"This has caused them to suffer losses of over RM3,000. The tiger is probably prompted to leave its natural habitat and enter the village following land clearing and logging activities at the nearby forest in Bukit Baka," he told reporters here today.
Prior to this, he said the residents were also threated by the presence of wild elephants which destroyed their crops such as rubber saplings and banana trees.
"We hope the Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) will take immediate action before the tiger strikes again," he said.
Kelantan Perhilitan director Rahmat Topani when contacted confirmed the incident and said that two officers had been deployed to the village to carry out investigation and formulate a suitable solution to the problem. Bernama
