Fifth rhino killed in three days by poachers in Kaziranga park

A rhino, left bleeding by poachers who removed its horn, succumbed to its injuries on Friday taking the number of total pachyderm deaths to five during the last three days in the Kaziranga National Park.

The male rhino, which strayed from the flooded park, was shot at inside the Jagadamba Tea Estate bordering Bagori range and its horn removed yesterday leaving it bleeding at the spot, officials said.

The rhino struggled for its life but succumbed to injuries though a veterinary team rushed to the spot to treat the injured pachyderm.
