A man is receiving an intensive medical treatment at Raden Mattaher Hospital in Jambi city after surviving a tiger attack on Thursday, Antara reported.

The tiger mauled Ishak, 37, late at night on Thursday as the sandalwood collector was resting inside a hut. One of his friends ran for a help and managed to release him from the carnivore.

Ishak suffered severe injuries to his neck, back and legs due to the attack.

“He survived after his friend pulled him from the tiger’s claws as the animal was trying to drag him into the forest,” Didiek Wurjanto, head of Jambi Natural Resources Conservation Agency, said.

Didiek said Ishak and his friends were collecting sandalwood at Berbak National Park.

It was the first case of tiger attack this year. The conservation agency data revealed eight people were mauled to death by tigers in Jambi last year.
