InfoSAWIT, ACEH – Tens of elephant destroyed the agriculture and plantation of the villagers of Lhok Timon, Sub district of Setia Bakti, District of Aceh Jaya. It happened since Saturday (21/10) to Sunday. The elephants broke the palm oil and rubber plantations of the villagers.
As quoted from, aceh.tribunnews.com, in their action, besides breaking the palm oil and rubber areas, the elephants also ate the immature trees that could make the trees unproductive anymore.
