Orang Asli to face prosecution over trapped tiger

SUNGKAI: An Orang Asli man is to face the law for having set a wildboar trap that snared and injured a tiger in Tapah near here on Sunday.

The Perak Wildlife and National Parks Department is considering charging him under the Wildlife Conservation Act 2010.

Its director, Rozidan Md Yasin, said the man had been questioned and further investigation would be carried out under Section 29 of the Act.

The Act provides for a maximum fine of RM100,000 or a jail term of up to two years on conviction.

Rozidan said animal traps were a threat to the wildlife population.

Wild animals caught in the unattended traps would usually die after some time, and this was most cruel, he said.

“I advise the people against setting traps because snared animals can be subjected to a state of misery and will die,” he said.
