At least 152 Sumatran elephants (Alphas maximus sumatranus) have been killed since 2012 and the threat continues. The disappearance of elephants in 13 areas is due to the fact that elephant habitats have been turned into plantations and one-crop forest land.

Just in January, five elephants were found dead. On Thursday (25/2/2016), an elephant was found dead in Tesso Nilo National Park (TNTN), Riau, by a joint team from the TNTN Center, the police and the Riau World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

Syamsidar, Riau WWF spokesman, said a member who was patrolling the TNTN sent Riau WWF a text message on Thursday afternoon about a dead elephant. "There's no other statement to make. Until now, we have no idea of its gender, whether it is male or female, the time of death or any other information. We can't contact the patrol team as the phone signal there is low," he said.

Tanya Tjahjana, TNTN Center chief, was similarly unable to provide information on the elephant's death, explaining that he had not received a full report.

On the same day, a 10-year-old male elephant was found decapitated in the Rawa Bundar Resort, about 2 kilometers from the border of Way Kambas National Park (TNWK), Lampung. Its teeth were all over the carcass.

Dulhadi, TNWK Center chief, said the elephant was estimated to have died 6 to 7 days prior to decomposition. The results of an autopsy by TNWK veterinarians did not find a specific disease in the elephant's body. "The dead elephant, it is suspected, was a victim of poaching because it was found without tusks," he said.

The case is under investigation by the East Lampung Police. "We haven't figured out how the poachers killed the elephant. So far there is no evidence to suggest that a trap was used or it was shot," Dulhadi said. [*]
