Pelaihari, South Kalimantan 9/5 (AntaranewsKalsel) - Hectares of paddy plants in Tebing Siring, Bajuin Sub-district, Tanah Laut (Tala), damaged by beruk monkey attack known by local people as bangkui (short-tailed macaque).

"The attack happened almost to all farmers' land in this village, especially the rice crops that have begun to come out with grains," said Galuh, a farmer in Tebing Siring village in Pelaihari on Tuesday.

Due to the disruption by bangkui, the rice that has been damaged, caused the yield obtained didnot match expectations.

To reduce the attacks of warm-blooded animals, farmers every day should be on guard in their grown rice land.

"If not maintained our rice plants will be destroyed by bangkui, so when the rice starts to bear fruit we routinely keep the fields," she explained.

The same thing is expressed by other farmer of Tebing Siring, Badriah, that the disruption of bangkui in their fields has been going on for a long time and this day continues to happen.

She asked the related agencies to provide assistance to overcome the bangkui attacks when the rice plants begin to bear fruit.

Meanwhile, the monkey, with the Latin name Macaca nemestrina, is species of medium-body apes. It includes terrestrial animals (many spend their time on land), but the animals are also highly skilled in climbing. Beruk is also different from most primates. If most primates keep the distance from the water, the subtlete likes to play water.
