MELAKA: Uninvited guests are being a nuisance to Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali and his family at Seri Bendahara, his official residence in Ayer Keroh here.

A herd of wild pigs has been foraging in the vast green lung surrounding Seri Bendahara, and an operation has been planned to remove them by state agriculture, agro-based, entrepreneur development and cooperative committee chairman Datuk Norhizam Hassan Baktee.

The operation was carried out last night involving rangers from the Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) who combed the compound of Seri Bendahara to cull the animals.

When contacted, Norhizam said the wild boar population in the state was still high despite efforts to control the species.

He noted that 177 wild pigs have been culled this year up to Feb 8, while 1,240 were culled throughout 2020.
