Rhino poaching continue in #Assam, one more rhino killed in Kaziranga National Park

An adult female one-horn rhino has been killed by the poachers in Assam's famed Kaziranga National Park.
The incident took place at the Teteliguri forest area near the Kohora range of the National Park. The rising demand in Asia for rhino's horns has led to increased killings of these one-horn rhinos. This year alone 24 rhinos have been killed so far in Assam by poachers.

"Patrolling forest guards heard gunshots around 3 am today near Teteliguri camp in Kohora range and launched a search operation in the area," Kaziranga Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) S K Seal Sharma said.
