KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 28 ― Police were left baffled when a man reported that his car was attacked by snakes crossing the road, with one even causing the bonnet to be dented.
The snakes then escaped into the bushes in Jalan Besar Sungai Tua, Ulu Yam Baru, Selangor, claimed the 48-year-old man.
It was the first such report, lodged at 11.46 am on Thursday, policemen at the Ulu Yam Bharu Police Station had received.
However, upon further investigations, it was found that the ‘snake’ was actually a horse.
“The complainant, a Chinese man from Puchong, was not fluent in Malay, and said ‘ular’ (snake) instead of ‘kuda’ (horse). Our investigations at the location found that his car was attacked by a herd of horses which were crossing the road,” Hulu Selangor District Police Chief Supt R. Supramaniam told Bernama today.
Supramaniam said at about 10.45 am, one of the horses kicked the Toyota Camry the man was driving.
He said as a result of the attack, the car was damaged and dented in the bonnet.
He said the driver then lodged a report at the Ulu Yam Baru Police Station after that.
The Hulu Selangor District Council has also been informed of the incident for further action to be taken against the horses’ owner. ― Bernama
