Wild tuskar found dead near Bornadi WLS

A full grown wild tuskar has been found dead at Neewly PRF to the south of Samrang close to Bornadi Wildlife Sanctuary in Udalguri district today morning. It is suspected to be killed by people as the dead body of the tuskar bore several injury marks. The injured tuskar was seen last week at Khorani area near Samrang forest. According to nature loving people it could have been saved had it been treated last week. So far 23 wild elephants had been dead in Udalguri district alone in just two years causing serious concern.
