The police, military and BKSDA went out in force overnight to look for the tigers. They were ordered “to monitor their movements, as capturing the endangered species would have been extremely dangerous for the men,” said Suparto, a BKSDA official from the Singkawang area.

Singkawang Mayor Tjhai Chui Mie ordered the zoo to be closed during the hunt, only for the installation to be opened if it is deemed safe.

Tigers and other wild animals escaping from zoos and facing off against humans are uncommon in Indonesia, as most human and animal conflicts in the country occur in the animals’ natural habitat.
