(A National Park Department offier demonstrating his courage by kneeling in the line of fire of a 12-gauge shotgun. Syabas!)
It was reported that residents in Jalan Wangsa, Bukit Antarabangsa have been “terrorised” by a herd of wild boar for the past few months. So the natural Malaysian knee-jerk reaction is to shoot the fuckers. Don’t cheer yet. They meant the boars, not the residents. But that’s not the scary part.
The Malay Mail today reported that officers from the National Parks Department swung into action armed with .22 rifles and 12-gauge shotguns! It doesn’t take an armaments expert to tell you that unless those pegawai-pegawai have Hollywood style fictional accuracy a .22 rifle is a very dangerous weapon around people. It has a killing range of 2 miles!
By the way, I live in Jalan Wangsa, Bukit Antarabangsa.
Elsewhere in the same story, a 22-year old student interviewed said, “They are also noisy and have given us many sleepless nights. I’m ticked off.” Well, pardon me all over the fucking place, miss. But I am sure the pigs are ticked off too. You’re living in their backyard. Without their written permission. Oh sorry, maybe she meant the flers with the guns were noisy and ticked her off.
