The Wildlife Authority (BBKSDA) in North Sumatra carried
out a regular patrol in Batang Toru Forest to prevent wildlife crimes in the
area, especially Tapanuli orangutan.
During the regular patrol on Monday (2018.04.30) the team encountered a man with air rifle walking on the border Batang Toru forest. The patrol team asked why he was carrying an air rifle in the area. The man said, pig tailed macaques and long tailed macaques always steel his crops and he used the air rifle to prevent that.
