Poachers claim five rhinos in three days in Northeast India

Five rare rhinos have been brutally poached last week near Kaziranga National Park in the northeast Indian state of Assam. When discovered, four were dead and one was still alive, bleeding and in critical state with its horn hacked off.

Efforts to treat the surviving rhino were carried out by veterinarians from the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW – www.ifaw.org) as well as experts from the College of Veterinary Sciences in Guwahati. The rhino did not recover and succumbed to its injuries on the 28th of September.
