Rhino carcass found in Manas

RUPAK DAS, BAKSA: After a brief lull, rhino poaching has struck Manas National Park. Forest guards recovered the carcass of a full grown rhino at Dauzeng of the Bhuyapara range of the national park on Saturday. The horn of the animal which was believed to have been killed two or three days back was missing. The carcass bore three injury marks. The rhino was brought to this park along with four others from the Pabitara wildlife sanctuary in 2012 under the project Indian Rhino Vision-2020(IRV-2020). With this, the number of rhinos killed in this park has gone up to 8.
