What in the world is that animal doing here inLangkawi? I couldn't believe it until M showed me the images she has taken. One of our favourite hobbies is to "slither" away into nice looking trails to take pictures or simply to explore. The famous proverb "Curiosity kills the cat" but M's curiosity found a cat! And is not some ordinary cat!
The cat was hidden behind some bushes on the trail. She managed to sneak quietly behind the bushes and caught the images. M's first thought when she noticed the chain was "Oh Shit.."
The interesting part was it has a short metal chain around it's neck. Attached to the short metal chain was a thin piece of nylon looking rope. Nylon looking rope! Can that hold such super strength tiger?? And the best part was the tiger was not in the cage!
What if that thin rope snapped? Whooaaahhahhhaa... tourists for dinner? Is next to Telaga Tujuh anyway and is peak season now. Sorry, I cannot review the exact location here. Because only M knows.
These questions came into our mind. Who brought the tiger here? How did it pass through the Jabatan Kastam? Any permit to allow that? And why that permit was allowed? How long has it been there!?
M made a call to Perhilitan today and was told that this tiger has a permit to be here and CAGED! What? Why? Why? Well, they said they will check.
The island is not capable to have a zoo to house this poor little tiger! Why allowed such permit? Bloody irresponsible "tong-tong people"!
First was the little Jumbo at the Langkawi cable car Oriental Village and now a huge Kitty next to the Oriental Village. What in the world these "tong-tong brain" people are thinking? Money sucking into their pockets, of course! What if the tiger escapes and starts preying into the kampungs for the cows? Also, what the tourists would think of us when Malaysia preached about tiger conservation.
Anyone wants to bet which park this tiger is going to next? How can we send this tiger back to where it belongs - into the wild?
Thank you very much to M for sharing her images.
