Rare Sumatran tiger killed by trap in Indonesia via @cmswire

JAKARTA - AN ENDANGERED Sumatran tiger has died of its wounds after after several days attempting to break free of a steel wire trap in Indonesia, an official said on Saturday. The 18-month-old male tiger was found on Friday morning and died in the afternoon near an acacia plantation in Pelalawan district of Riau province, the official from the Riau Conservation Agency technical said. 'The tiger died because it could not eat or drink and it kept on bleeding. The trap wires have entered its bones,'he said. 'The people in the area said the trap was intended for pigs. But any animals caught in that trap could also die,' he added. There are fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild. Environmental activists say the animals are increasing coming into contact with people as a result of their natural habitat being lost due to deforestation. -- AFP
