A rhinoceros from Kaziranga National Park, who earlier had strayed out at Bandardubi area and was found resting on the National Highway-37 in Assam, was found dead on Friday.
“With profound grief, we would like to inform you all that the rhino which has been straying at Bandardubi area since 17th July and drawn the attention of all concerned public was found dead at about 11 am on 24/07/2020 at the edge of Deopani River inside NP by the staff of Dusuti camp”, Kaziranga National Park officials said in a tweet.
The rhino was later taken back to the Kaziranga National Park. “He (Rhino who strayed out) has moved into the Park Territory. He is regaining his strength. Team @kaziranga_is giving him his natural food. We along with @nagaonpolice are guarding the area for his safety. Thank you, everyone, for the support,” the park tweeted.
After the video went viral, many had said that they felt bad for the animal affected by the floods and urged that mitigation measures must be adopted soon. Some also lauded the Kaziranga National Park officials for helping the rhino.
