Very unlucky, to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. That wound will sting for a while.

Unprovoked? Maybe if people stopped encroaching on their habitat...

Jeez. What are the odds of that happening? There are probably only like 6 of those animals left in the world. The odds are probably worse than winning the Spanish El Gordo lottery while getting hit by lightning and by a falling meteor, all simultaneously.

It was payback for what the Khmer guy did to the buffalo's sister.

The high dorsal ridge and tightly curved horns would indicate that this is a Gaur rather than a Banteng. Gaurs are not as rare as Bantengs.


Gaur.

Bantengs, they seem to vary widely in appearance though:
