Death of the Night Stalkers

Wild Dogs Poisoned in Tabanan, Bali in Effort to End Mysterious Death of Local Livestock

(8/24/2012) As reported on balidiscovery.com, farmers living near Banjar Gulingan in the Tabanan regency of Bali have recently been terrorized by mysterious attacks on their cattle, with unknown animals savagely eviscerating 10 cows. [See: Night Stalker].

Bali Post reports that farmers are breathing easier following the elimination of eight wild dogs in the area achieved by using baits of poisoned meat.

Farmers, working with representatives of the Tabanan Livestock Service, placed the poisoned traps at selected locations managing in the process to kill 8 feral dogs in a single night.

Farmers confirmed the dead dogs resembled wolves, having long snouts and ranging in color from red, brown and striped. The poisoning took place on the night of Thursday, August 23, 2012.

In keeping with local tradition, the carcasses of the eight dead dogs were buried in a single grave where offerings were made.

Villagers are now hopeful that the nighttime predators have been eliminated by the poisoning and that the deaths of young cattle by predators in the night have come to an end.
