Mass killing of Rhino at Kaziranga National Park
The world heritage site, Kaziranga National Park of Assam is one of the worst areas affected by poachers’ attacks on animals, the mass killing of rhinos.
Recently, some poachers targeted a rhino and after chopping off its horn in the Kaziranga National Park, they left it in deathful pain to survive for few hours.
As per media reports, within 48 hours, three rhinos poached, out of them two have assaulted while removing horns. A total of 16 have so far been hit under the poachers’ attack poached this year.
As the flooded water hit the Park, animals moved towards the hills of Karbianglong to escape themselves. The park authorities and police were tracking it till late in the night, reports said.
Meanwhile, Kaziranga’s wildlife organisations protested against killing of rhinos, blaming government for protection failure.
The female rhino, which was found bleeding and writhing in pain, is under treatment, Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife) Suresh Chand told reporters.
Four rhinos and 18 other animals including hog deer, wild boars and sambar were flooded in the current wave of water; around 700 animals were reported dead when the sanctuary was first flooded in July.
