Tigers kill 20 pigs near Bokor Mountain

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

The only passage is that tiny strip (with people living around it) between Bokor and Kirirum. I doubt tigers would cross over there and though Bokor is still fairly big, it doesn't contain big game needed for tigers. Leopards would be possible I guess. One could probably tell by looking at the wounds. Maybe some frustrated villagers who have had their land taken from them killed them... Has he been connected to any land grabs?
The tigers preferred prey may not be there, but there are dogs and pigs and lots of cows. But I don’t know one way or the other. One may be able to survive. I hope it was a tiger that killed them. First thing I would look for is evidence at the kill site bite mark size, pug marks, etc
