A tiger was found roaming on a road in the Bukit Awan area, about 6 kilometers from Kampung Pagi, Ulu Tembeling, Jerantut.

Based on a report by Utusan, a 30-second video of the animal was recorded by a resident of the area, 34-year-old Izat Abd. Ghani, as he and two friends were on their way home from work at around 9:30pm.

“When the car approached the Bukit Awan area, we suddenly saw a Malayan tiger running on the road. We were surprised and the tiger crossed (the road) while turning towards the light from the car’s headlight before sneaking under the metal barricade on the right of the road, into the bushes,” he said.

None of them expected to see a tiger on their journey home.

“When this animal looked back, its eyes seemed to glow for a few seconds when it was exposed to the glare of the car lights,” 45-year-old Ahmad Hafizee Mohamad, who was also in the car, shared.

He also explained that tiger encounters are becoming a common occurrence for the residents in the area as, for the past two decades, the wild animals have only lived in the marginal forest near the roads.

Another resident of Kampung Pagi, 32-year-old Mokhtar Abdullah added that deforestation for the production of commercial timber are among the factors of tigers and other animals crossing into the human world to look for food, as their habitat is being disrupted and disturbed.

“The habitat of tigers and wild elephants are near Kampung Pagi and other settlements on the bank of the Tembeling River, because the habitats of these animals are already threatened,” he said.

Harimau belang berkeliaran di Bukit Awan, Ulu Tembeling JERANTUT: Seekor harimau belang ditemukan berkeliaran di atas jalan raya di kawasan Bukit Awan, kira-kira enam kilometer dari Kampung Pagi, Ulu Tembeling di sini, semalam.Video berdurasi 30 saat penemuan haiwan itu dirakam penduduk Kampung Pagi, Mohd. Izat Abd. Ghani, 34, kira-kira pukul 9.30 malam ketika dia dalam perjalanan pulang dari tempat kerja ke Kampung Pagi bersama dua rakannya.“Apabila kereta menghampiri kawasan Bukit Awan, tiba-tiba kami ternampak seekor Harimau Malaya yang sedang berlari di atas jalan raya.“Kami terkejut dan harimau belang itu terus melintas sambil menoleh ke arah cahaya lampu kereta sebelum menyusup di bawah besi penghadang kanan jalan dan masuk ke dalam semak,” katanya di Kampung Pagi di sini hari ini.Rakannya, Ahmad Hafizee Mohamad, 45, berkata, ketika asyik berbual mereka tidak menyangka Harimau Malaya tiba-tiba berada di atas jalan raya melintas di situ.“Ketika haiwan ini menoleh ke belakang, biji matanya kelihatan bercahaya dalam beberapa saat terkena silau cahaya lampu kereta,” katanya.Menurutnya, peristiwa terserempak dengan Harimau Belang memang lumrah bagi penduduk Ulu Tembeling sejak dua dekad lalu kerana haiwan liar itu cuma tinggal di hutan pinggir berdekatan jalan raya Kampung Tuit (Kuala Tahan) ke Kampung Mat Daling (Ulu Tembeling).Sementara itu, penduduk Kampung Pagi, Mokhtar Abdullah, 32, berkata, penebangan hutan untuk pengeluaran kayu balak komersial antara faktor habitat harimau dan haiwan lain terganggu serta musnah termasuk kawasan rayau mencari makanan.“Habitat harimau belang dan gajah liar berdekatan Kampung Pagi dan penempatan lain di pesisir Sungai Tembeling kerana habitat hidupan ini sudah terancam,” katanya.Ujarnya, haiwan liar seperti Harimau Malaya dan gajah keluar pada waktu malam merayau-rayau di pinggir kampung untuk mencari makanan dan kadangkala terserempak dengan penduduk Kampung Pagi, Kampung Kuala Sat dan penempatan lain di Ulu Tembeling.▶️UTUSAN

It’s so sad to see such a majestic animal having to wander close to human settlements and scurrying away from cars as they’re losing their homes.

Why can’t we be happy with what we have and take no more of their space?
