Rhino poaching back in Kaziranga

Despite round the clock vigil, rhino poaching refuses to die  down in Kaziranga. Poachers have struck the abode of one horn rhino on Wednesday sending shock and anger across the state.

Forest authorities told Assam Times that the poachers killed a full grown rhino at Burhapahar range in the wee hours. The horn is missing from the carcass that bears bullet injuries.

This is the sixth rhino poaching incident that riddles the world heritage site this year alone.
