Rhino again killed in Kaziranga National Park

Yet another rhino was found killed in the Kaziranga National Park on Friday. Poachers, who killed the rhino have already taken away its horn to reach the rhino poaching tally to 24.

According to information, the body of the one-horned rhino, slain about three days ago, was found on Friday in a water body at Singimari with its horn swan off. The body of the rhino bore bullet marks on both sides of its head and on the side of its right leg. In this very spot, a female rhino and its calf were killed by poachers about two months ago before the horn was taken away. This Dulamari area is being encroached upon by people from neighbouring areas helping the poachers to carry out their illegal activity..
