MATU: Residents of Kampung Tian Hilir Matu, who have been suffering attacks from monkeys recently, are advised to inform the authorities and state the locations of the incidents.
Deputy Minister in the Premier’s Office (Integrity and Ombudsman) and Jemoreng assemblyman Datuk Dr Juanda Jaya said cooperation was needed for the authorities to take action.
“Thank God, the Sarawak Forest Corporation (SFC) has started taking immediate action by placing traps at the locations of the attacks.”
He hoped that SFC could take special attention and make a detailed study on the matter.
“It is possible that their (monkeys) habitat is threatened by the oil palm crops in the area. However, to confirm this situation, a detailed study needs to be done by SFC and other authorities.
“The main reason now is that we are worried about the safety of so many children and the elderly in this village.”
