A shooting range within the grounds of the Penang Botanic Garden is troubling regular garden enthusiasts who see it as incompatible with the surroundings.
They say the daily shooting is aesthetically unsound and a threat to public safety as there is only a chain-link fence separating the shooting range from the public car-park. The loud noises also affect the biodiversity in the area, they claim.
The land where the Club sits now has been automatically gazetted as part of the expanded Garden and the Club should have moved out like the Boy Scouts Coronation Camp did.
If you are concerned about the present site of the Rifle Club and would like it relocated, you can sign the online petition here.
