All works went normal until 2:30 pm when Usman heard a cry for help from his wife who was 100 meters away from him. Once approached, Usman was shocked to see Rusmayati was pounced by Sumatran tiger and he immediately tried to scare off the tiger and the tiger left the site immediately.

Usman immediately fled his wife who suffered serious injuries on the right shoulder to Sungai Penuh Hospital with help from Pelda Datrizal, member of Kodim 0417/KRC. After intensive care, the victim can be rescued and is currently undergoing recovery at the hospital.

The animal conflict mitigation team will continuously monitor the scene in the next few days to avoid similar incident. The team also provided financial assistance to Rusmayati family.

3. Monitoring Results 

After monitoring and gathering information in the field, the team concluded that the cause of human tiger conflict in the area as (1) Lack of prey in Sumatran tiger habitat resulting tiger roamed outside national park area; (2) Hunting of Sumatran tiger prey animals increased; (3) Encroachment and illegal logging activities in Sumatran tiger habitat also increased disturbing animals; and (4) The tigers enter “weaning” cycle when the mother teaches her children to hunt and feed himself. Once the children are capable to hunt, the tiger mother will release them and the children will live independently or make a new group.

The conflict mitigation team urged people to avoid conflict with Sumatran tiger by not traveling alone to field/garden. People are advised to always make noises and wear mask that resembles a human face on the back of their head. The cultivated fields should be kept clean, especially from the bushes. People are advised to provide Kentungan to make noises, starting fire and be cautious of natural signs, such rain in hot season. At this time people should not be working at field alone. Finally, when encountering face to face with wild animals, especially tiger, people are advised to yell as hard as possible and not turning their backs.

Conflict mitigation team hopes that Mrs. Rusmayati becoming the first and the last victim in the location by applying these various tips. The team hopes, in the future, people will become more aware about problems behind human and wildlife conflict and start living and coexisting in harmony with nature.
