KUALA TERENGGANU (Bernama): Teenager Muhammad Syukur Khamis, who earned the nicknames ‘Mowgli Malaysia’ and ‘Kampong Boy’, has expressed his sadness over the 25 buffaloes belonging to his father that were found dead Monday (Sept 14) morning.

Muhammad Syukur, 15, in a Facebook post, said this was a great loss to his family and he did not rule out the possibility that a disease had caused the deaths at Kampung Banggol Katong.

Dugaan besar buat kami sekeluarga... mungkin sekarang musim wabak...kami sekeluarga mengharapkan doa dari semua agar musibah ini segera berakhir...

"This is likely a seasonal outbreak and we hope it will end soon, ” he posted under the ‘Syukur Khamis – Kampong Boy’ Facebook account which showed photographs of the burial process.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Seri Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri, in his Facebook page, also gave words of encouragement to Muhammad Syukur and his father Khamis Jusoh, 64, reminding them to seek Allah’s help with perseverance and prayers.

Muhammad Syukur became a worldwide sensation among photographers since 2015 for his prowess in interacting with the over 100 head of buffaloes reared by his father.

A picture of him with a herd of the animals went viral on social media after it was voted best picture in Asia besides being shortlisted as among the top 20 photographs in the world. – Bernama
