Council orders cattle owner to vacate TNB land.
A CATTLE farmer who has set up a “farm’’ in a vacant piece of TNB land between Bandar Bukit Tinggi and Bandar Botanic in Klang will face action from the authority if he refused to move out of the area.
The warning came from the Klang Municipal Council, which had earlier this month conducted a series of inspections.
Council deputy president Mohd Jaid Ehsan said they had captured part of the cattle and more inspections would be held to clean up the area.
He said the captured cattle would be sent to the council’s Centre for Animal Collection located in Bandar Sultan Sulaiman in Port Klang.
“The Klang Land Office has issued the owner of the cattle notice to move out but the person has requested the authority for some time before moving out.
“We have identified three new areas for the cattle, but the owner has yet to respond,’ Mohd Jaid said.
The council’s public relations officer Norfiza Mahfiz confirmed that they had received numerous complaints from residents in the area.
“The owner of the cattle does not have approval to fence up the vacant land under the TNB high tension cables and turn it into a farm,’’ she said.
StarMetro on Monday reported that the residents of Bandar Bukit Tinggi and Bandar Botanic were puzzled over the presence of a corral between the two housing estates.
They supsected that a cowherd, who had in the past let the cattle to graze around the two housing estates, had recently built the enclosure.

Syabas to MPK for their prompt response on the cattle farmer.

How about similar action on the other "occupier" of those other plots under TNB high tension cables. They may not be intended for cattle but selling potted plants or any other business under the TNB cables will certainly create "plenty of tension".

It surprises many residents as to why Tenaga Nasional Berhad is keeping silent on these matters. Did they give the approval?

Dear BB Residents,

Mark this date for 1 year from today, you are still going to have the cattle problem. Without sounding pessimistic, the cattle problem was here 3 years ago and the numbers have swelled instead of receding and the cattle will be here after 1 year.

It only goes to show how effective MPK can be despite under different government today. It can be worse with the TNB problem.
