‘No efforts to trap monkeys before they were shot dead, area residents say’


SEREMBAN: Activists from Lawyers for Animal Rights disagree that Wildlife and National Parks Department officers had acted in good faith when they shot and killed seven protected dusky langurs in Port Dickson.

Lawyers Rajesh Nagarajan and Sachpreetraj Singh said there was no justification for the culling of the shy leaf-eating species protected under the Wildlife Conservation Act 2010 and categorised as “endangered” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, and it appears on its Red List of Threatened Species.
