As humans, we sometimes tend to forget that the reason animals come to cities or “human areas” is because we’re slowly destroying their habitats. Nevertheless, in these situations, it seems like most of their initial responses are to kill these animals cruelly instead of understanding their desperation.

A couple in their 50s from Kuala Krai, Kelantan was arrested for possession of an AK-47 with 142 bullets. Kelantan Police Chief Shafien Mamat said the raid was done after receiving information from the public.

Both the individuals arrested are Malaysians and initial investigations revealed that the husband confessed he’s been in possession of the firearm for five years now since a man from Tanah Merah gave it to him.

“The suspect claimed that the firearm was used to shoot wild animals such as elephants that often enter his rubber plantation. So far, the suspect has admitted to shooting two elephants with the firearm.”

Shafien added that the suspects were arrested for possession of a firearm without a license or permit and last used the weapon two years ago. Bernama reported that further investigations will be carried out in accordance with Section 8 of the Firearms (Heavier Penalties) Act 1971 and Section 8 (a) of the Weapons Act 1960 which on conviction is punishable by imprisonment, fines, and whipping.

The urine test conducted found that both were drug negative. PDRM will also be investigating the man known as “Su” who supplied the firearm and bullets at RM15 apiece. The case will also be referred to the Kelantan Perhilitan Department as the suspect confessed to killing elephants.
