The fossil teeth of a herbivorous mammal, preserved at the site of their discovery in Gua Matsoorat here, have been damaged.
Perak Natural Heritage Geopark Tour Guides Association chairman Mohd Fadly Md Noor said the teeth and partial jawbone were found damaged at about 12.30pm on Thursday (March 18).
Mohd Fadly said a group of people, believed to be from a video production company, had visited the cave earlier.
“We are not sure which company they are from and what they were trying to shoot but it was a big group.
“When we asked whether they had permits to visit the cave, they said yes but couldn’t show any proof,” he said when contacted.
“A police patrol car came over to check and it was then that the group dispersed,” he said.
