Poachers did it again. The victim? A rare rhino was attacked in a jungle near Kaziranga National Park, India. Unfortunately, this time veterinarians were not able to arrive very fast at the scene. The wounded one horned rhinoceros lies shot on the ground while news outlets make photos and film it. The badly injured rhino was dehorned by poachers and then left behind bleeding from a gunshot wound.
Kaziranga’s community leader is not happy that Veterinarians did not came within 72 hours after the attack was reported: “It’s a tragedy that even after 72 hours, vets failed to reach the injured rhino while local TV channels were beaming live images of the helpless animals,”
