Crying tiger in a forest if They Do not Hear the Traditional Music Dance

As early as six months of preparation caught a tiger who always enters the village settlement in the Tarok Village, Pandawa Lima Forest, Nagari Kepala Hilalang, Padang Pariaman, the villagers always complain when they lose an animal such as cows, goats, ducks and chickens.

Villagers have a tradition of tiger catching, after successfully snared tiger traps baited with a goat in it, then at the edge of the forest villagers held a traditional ceremony of dancing and beating drums, the sound of traditional music will be floated gently down to the woods . Traditional dances, "Ulu Ambek" - traditional martial arts and traditions of drum tattoo, such as randai, saluang (flute) music, talempong, piring dance (the saucer dance) and others.

Tigers are listening to traditional music and the crowded population willing to be moved into an iron cage and was evacuated to a quarantine location Zoo Tiger Conservation in Bukittinggi, West Sumatra to be treated.

Apparently on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 residents do not perform the full ceremony, a Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) who were arrested refused to enter into an iron cage.

The tiger is actually sitting casually in the first trap and was impressed reluctant to move into an iron cage. The tiger was crying, wailing softly and shook his head as if to say 'no'.

A tiger charmer named Buyung approached and asked the tiger with the gesture language, "That tiger did not want to move because the terms of traditional music played by a complete lack of the villagers," he said.

Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is found only on Sumatra island was among the most endangered animals in the endangered species list, released by International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). (Also read the Sumatran Tiger - Wikipedia)

The beast though apparently understands that to move to a new place also needs adjustment, tigers have an intuition that he no longer want to be in a forest, he wept.
