Orangutan found dead near orchard

13th July, 2018

SANDAKAN: A semi-adult male orangutan was found dead inside a nearby orchard adjacent to the Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve here on Wednesday, 11th July 2018.

The incident was reported to the State Wildlife Department by a staff of a nearby resort.

Disclosing this was the Department’s spokesperson Siti Nur’Ain Ampuan Acheh.

“Personnel from the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre (SORC) rushed to the scene upon receiving the report and found the carcass lying on the ground without any sign of infliction or physical injury.

“Preliminary investigation suggests no suspected foul play. A full post-mortem will be carried out to determine the cause of death,” she said this in a brief statement issued Thursday. – By Michael Teh
