Jakarta: The body of Milyan, an 18 year-old resident of Pino Baru village in South Bengkulu Regent, Bengkulu, was found dead after apparently being mauled by a tiger, his family reported.

“He was attacked when he was alone in the coffee plantation,” Milyan’s aunt Surainah said Sunday, as quoted bytempointeraktif.com.

She said that other farmers had found Milyan’s body on Thursday night near his farm.

As a result of the incident, many local farmers decided to remain in their villages until the tiger was captured by the Natural Resource Conservation Agency (BKSDA).

The agency said that they would set traps to capture the tiger after receiving permission from the Directorate General of Nature Conservation and Forest Protection.
