Trapped Sumatran Tiger to be Moved to Lampung
South Sumatra Governor Herman Deru confirmed that a Sumatran tiger (Pantera Tigris Sumatrae), trapped in Semendo Darat Ulu Sub-district, Muara Enim District, South Sumatra Province, will be moved to Lampung.
The Sumatran forest, as a habitat of tigers, must be protected, Deru stated here on Tuesday.
The governor believed that owing to habitat destruction, the tiger, in search of food, had entered a nearby village and triggered a sense of fear and panic among the local villagers.
Another tiger taken from the Sumatran forests, because it was looking for food.
Tigers are losing their habitat fast. They lack food and place to live.
The palmoil industry, backed up by the Indonesian government, is gaining more and more control over Sumatran forests.
Who is gonna stop this?
