Residents in Taman Glenmarie, Shah Alam, are urging local authorities to eradicate the mosquito problem, Tamil Nesan reported.

Resident K. Kaveri said the surrounding areas had not been cleared for a long time and were now clogged with overgrown shrubs.

This has made the area a mosquito breeding ground and may have caused recent dengue cases.

Kaveri said residents lodged complaints with the Shah Alam City Council, which in turn asked them to report the matter to the Public Works Department.

He claimed residents submitted several complaints and are unhappy that no action has been taken.

They called on Seri Setia assemblyman Halimey Abu Bakar and Petaling Jaya MP Maria Chin Abdullah to assess the situation.

> Wildlife activists and authorities in Tamil Nadu, India, were devastated to find over 50 wild deer and dozens of wild horses dead in one area after Cyclone Gaja hit, Tamil Nesan reported.

The cyclone brought heavy downpours and 110kph winds.

Veterinarians said the winds could have caused them to run in fear until they died of heart attacks.
