Tiger Legs Entangled in Riau Threatened Amputation

LAMANRIAU.COM, PEKANBARU – A wild tiger called Corina, who was a victim of wild snares in Pelalawan Regency, Riau, is now in a rehabilitation center. The medical team’s diagnosis is the worst possible result of his leg being amputated due to a wound wound.

“Corina Tiger male 77.8 kg weight, 170 cm long age of about 3 years. Diagnosed with anemia and laceration. Anemia occurs because of red blood reduction, but not in significant numbers. Lacerations or new wounds caused by very deep snares lucky tendons (the connective tissue that connects muscle and bone tissue) is unbroken,” said the Operational Manager of the Sumatran Tiger Rehabilitation Center Dhamasraya (PH-HSD) in West Sumatra, Dr. Saruedi Simamora, Tuesday (04/07/2020).

Related to the wound on the Corina tiger foot, the medical team is working as much as possible in treatment. “We seek the best treatment. Although the worst possibility is the right front leg can be amputated,” said S Simamora.

While Chairman of the Arsari Djojohadikusumo Foundation (YAD) Hashim Djojohadikusumo as the initiator of the PR-HSD claimed to be concerned about the case of snare-mounting by illegal hunters. Installation of wild snares will threaten the sustainability of Sumatran tigers.

“We are very saddened by the disaster that the community has not yet realized to preserve wild animals which will become extinct if they continue to be hunted,” Hashim said. (dtc)
