Strayed rhinoceros fit to be airlifted


Animal experts are camping at Rani Chapri in the outskirt of Guwahati to monitor a rhinoceros strayed out of Pabitora wildlife sanctuary last week. According to the 17 member team, the rhinoceros is fit to be airlifted.


A IAF chopper has been deployed to provide food to the animal. The rhino from the Pabitora wildlife sanctuary strayed out of the Park on September 29 and was washed away in flood water as it reached the waterbody. It would be airlifted as soon as the weather improves.
