Indian rhino dies in Kazaringa

An aged rhino died today after getting stuck in the mud in the Kaziranga National Park, Park officials said.

The male rhino was stuck in Borbeel near Haldibari beat under Kohora range of the Park since last night. The rhino could not pull itself out of the mud and died there at about 11.45am.

Forest officials termed the death as "natural" and removed the horn which would be kept in the custody of the forest department.

Altogether, 64 rhinos died this year in the Park with 22 due to natural causes and 23 in floods while 19 were killed by poachers. Article from http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/topic/Rhino-Dies

100 more guards, 200 rifles to protect Kaziranga park


Faced with a spate of poaching of rhinos in the Kaziranga National
Park in the past few weeks and mounting criticism, the Assam
government on Tuesday released 200 self-loading rifles (SLRs) for the
protection force deployed there, with Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi
saying that his government was committed to protect rhinos and other
inmates of the park.

The Assam government had already deployed 100 additional forest
protection personnel in Kaziranga in the past two days.

Poachers have gunned down as many as 15 rhinos across the state in the
current year, 13 of them belonging to Kaziranga.

“The recent killing of rhinos in Kaziranga has been a matter of
serious concern. Our government has viewed it very seriously and would
do everything to protect the rhinos and other wildlife from poachers
and natural calamities like floods. We will plug all loopholes to
bring an end to poaching,” Gogoi said.

Gogoi, who formally handed over 200 SLRs to the Assam Forest
Protection Force here, also said the weapons would definitely raise
the confidence level of the forest guards who work round the clock in
Kaziranga.

Two rhinos found dead in Kaziranga

Two rhinos were found dead inside the world-famed Kaziranga National
Park which has witnessed a spate of rhino killings recently, park
officials said.

Two adult rhinos, a male and a female, were found dead with their
horns intact near Kanchanjuri camp and Ajankathani area under Bagori

The female rhino was suspected to have died yesterday while the other

natural causes.
Forest personnel removed the horns and those would be kept in the
custody of the department.
