An Indonesian plantation worker and a 75-year-old farmer got the shock of their lives when they were attacked by an unknown animal on two separate occasions.
The farmer, Aris Kuna of Kampung Paon Gahat, were attacked by the animal while attending to his pepper garden about noon. The plantation worker, however, was attacked a week later at a plantation near Kpg Baing while gathering oil palm fresh fruit bunches around 9am.
In all my life venturing into the jungle, hunting and such, I’ve never come across this species, 62-year-old Louis Nyaoi said when met at his house in Kpg Mentung Marau.
His son Jimmy Tubo, 27, believed that the animal could have appeared due to the clearing of the nearby jungle for agriculture development.
When relating the ordeal of the plantation worker, Jimmy said the Indonesian had claimed that the animal gave a strange noise, firstly sounding like a hen followed by a wild boar sound, before proceeding to attack. He said that the animal stood up on its hind legs when charging at him. He immediately swung his sickle, killing the animal instantly.
