Proving it’s not just unexploded ordnance that can kill you if you disrespect the laws of the Asian jungle, rescuers recently searched for five men trapped up trees after being tracked and attacked by several Sumatran tigers that also mauled a sixth man to death.

The incident happened in Mount Leuser national park in Taming, Aceh province, Indonesia, when the men, who were illegally logging agarwood, used to make incense and perfume, caught a tiger cub in a trap which they were using to trap deer for food.

Five other tigers in the area then attacked the men, one of whom was mauled to death, while the others managed to climb into trees to escape.

The rescue team had some trouble finding the missing men, a police chief said, adding: “We were worried because they could be weak and fall from the trees due to a lack of food.”

Sumatran tigers are an endangered species, with perhaps only 400 left in the wild; the chief threats being hunting and illegal logging.
