The streak of wildlife sightings in recent weeks – killer whales, tigers, a black panther, and sun bears – in the state of Terengganu’s waters, highway and rural village has caused frenzy among Malaysians.
People’s excitement aside, the wildlife sightings, however, may be seen as a hint of something not going well. The ‘friendly’ tiger named Awang Besul for example died due to Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) which caused him to appear with relatively calm and tame demeanor. The virus made him confused and unable to activate its predatory nature. Apart from that, the tiger was also dehydrated and had swollen legs.
