Браконьеры убили пять носорогов за три дня на северо-востоке Индии.

Пять редких носорогов были убиты браконьерами на прошлой неделе рядом с национальным парком «Казиранга» на северо-западе Индии в штате Ассам. Когда животные были обнаружены, четверо уже погибли, один носорог остался жив, истекая кровью и в критическом состоянии, его рог был отрублен.
