Rhino battling for life

Caught in deep mud, a full grown rhino seems to have been battling for life during the last 24 hours in Kaziranga.

The one horn animal is languishing in dying agony at a pit in Kohora range of the world heritage site.  

But strange are the ways of the forest department. The heavily manned department has yet to procure infrascture to rescue the animal from the jaws of death.

Veterinary doctors visited the animal. But only to be washed their hands off by pushing an injection.

Animal lovers have warned the authorities of dire consequences if the pride of Assam is not rescued safely.
