KUCHING: Sarawak wildlife authorities are calling off the hunt for the crocodile which killed a boy a month ago.

The reason: Their search is beginning to resemble a bloodbath.

The New Straits Times has learnt that several non-governmental organisations made their displeasure known to the Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) after Hatta Abidin hacked a reptile on Sunday.

The father of the 12-year-old boy threatened SFC officials who warned him that it was an offence to kill the crocodile.

He grabbed a parang and sliced open its stomach. He, however, found no trace of his son, Mohd Azuan Hatta.


CRIkey!

Like i said at the very beginning of the story.
The stupid villagers are supported by the Sarawak forestry to hunt and kill the protected croc species. good thing the NGO voice out about this matter now.

NGOs want croc hunt in Kuching stopped

KUALA LUMPUR: Two non-governmental organisations want the crocodile hunt in Kuching to stop.

It began after an attack on a 12-year-old boy.

Describing the hunt as barbaric, Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) Kuching branch chairman June Mary Rubis urged the authorities to permanently put a stop to such hunts.

Such hunts have been common practice since the Brooke era.

β€œIt is a sad thing. There could be other ways to avoid crocodile-human confrontations such as creating more awareness among the public on the crocodile,” she said.

Furthermore, she said, humans were not part of the reptile's natural diet.

Her call was supported by Malaysian Zoological Society vice-chairman Dr Loo Koi Sang, who said crocodiles were harmless creatures that would run away when they detected humans.

He said no crocodile should be killed as it was a protected species under the Wildlife Act. – Bernama

So far, four crocodiles had been caught after Sarawak Forestry issued a permit to hunt and kill the protected species following Mohd Azuan's death.


Kill 4 crocs to look for one dead kid. We are living in a modern city and the barbaric and uncivilized 3rd world country ppl are still part of the state. way to go for development.
