Salpa Yandri, director of the Institution Conservation Society (ICS), said the BKSDA needed to continue educate citizens about dealing with wild tigers, an endeavor in which the ICS is already assisting the BKSDA.
At least two female tigers have died in West Sumatra this year. The first was found dead in the city of Bukitinggi in January.
