Rhino killed in Kaziranga

One more rhino was killed for its horn in Kaziranga. The incident took place in the Burahpahar range of the national Park.
 
The male rhino was gunned down between Khorali and Borbhug forest camps on Tuesday night. Around 8 PM the forest guards heard gun shots and retaliated leading to heavy exchange of fire with the poachers for one and half hours. Launching a search operation today, the rhino carcass was recovered with its horn sawed away and empty cartridges of AK 47 and .303 rifles scattered near it. The Park and Forest Department officials suspect that poachers, helped by agents living near KNP, drive adult rhinos towards Buraphar and Bagori ranges to kill them.
