Human-wildlife conflict in Selangor caused by rapid development, says state exco

SHAH ALAM: The rapid development in Selangor has led to conflict between humans and wildlife in several areas in the state, said Bukit Lanjan assemblyman Elizabeth Wong today.

Wong said this was based on the rise in the number of reports involving animals, including monkeys, wild boars, foxes and snakes, encroaching into residential areas.

She said these areas include Sekinchan, Hulu Selangor and Kuala Selangor.

Wong said the State Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) has taken the necessary measures to keep the animals at bay, such as by distributing traps to residents living in high-risk areas.

Cages, she added, would be placed inside the residents’ compounds where food would be used as bait.

“The problem arises when housing developments are too close to the animals’ natural habitat. There is conflict because both parties (animals and humans) do not understand each other.

Dr M should not be invited to official Selangor programmes for insulting the palace with Bugis remarks

SHAH ALAM: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad must not be invited to participate in any official programme sponsored by the state or party, Selangor Barisan Nasional told the state legislative assembly today.

What is more, said BN assemblymen, the state government should share the same sentiment as the Selangor Royal Court, instead of turning a blind eye towards the insult leveled against the Bugis community, including Selangor royalty.

This comes following a statement from the Selangor Council of the Royal Court which said that Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, was incensed with the former prime minister for his derogatory remarks against the Bugis community.

Kuang assemblyman Datuk Abdul Shukur Idrus accused the state government of turning a blind eye towards the incident where Dr Mahathir had called the Bugis community pirates, robbers and criminals.
