Original text on this topic:
Ten years later, T. Harrisson (1949) wrote, `There are now almost certainly no rhinoceros left in Sarawak', although he was able to report observations in 1946 from the upper S. Padas, in Sabah, and in 1945 from S. Raya and from high ground in the upper S. Bahau in Kalimantan. In the Kelabit uplands Harrisson later found (Harrisson, in Davis, 1958) that `the Sumatran rhinoceros, once common in the area in the last century even breaking fences around padi fields - has not been reported anywhere in the area for twenty years. There are living Kelabits who have killed more than ten'.
