Another rhino killed in Kaziranga
Poachers have killed yet another one-horned rhino in Kaziranga National Park and took away its horn, officials said on Thursday. Park officials said the incident came to notice on Thursday morning when the guards recovered the carcass of the rhino from the park's Burhaphar range.
The rhino horn was missing, which indicated poaching, park officials said. This is the 16th one-horned rhino to be killed by poachers in the park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this year.
Although the government claims to have taken several steps to stop the menace, the poachers continue to kill the animal for its horn.
