Orang Asli kids kill tiger

October 13, 2016

PETALING JAYA: Pictures of two Orang Asli children killing a tiger have gone viral on social media.

Following that, a wildlife watchdog is appealing to Malaysians to come forward to identify the people behind the killing.

Malaysian Nature Society President Hendry Goh said the incident took place last week in Pahang.

“The tiger was killed with a snare, usually used by the Orang Asli. They will wait for the tiger to walk into the sharp snare that kills the animal,” he told FMT.

Goh posted the pictures of the incident on his Facebook page today, urging people with knowledge on the incident to contact the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) at 1 300 801 010 or call MNS at 019 3564194.

He said poachers continue to use Orang Asli to kill wildlife in Malaysia.

“The poachers will give a bit of money to Orang Asli to kill the animals.

“In return, they make thousands in US dollars by selling the skins and other organs on the underground international market.”

MNS, he said, is hoping to preserve tigers, which are a national symbol.

Celebration! Four Orang Asli acquitted by Court is a Time of Joy!
