Kaziranga National Park: Two rhinos are killed in Kaziranga National Park close to Burapahar Range on Wednesday. This year almost twenty Rhinos are killed till the date as compare to the last year 38 rhinos were killed.

Their is huge demand for rhino horns which sells for minimum 1 crore at international market. According to the latest census there were 2,329 rhinos at park. Recently Assam Government introduce the remote-controlled Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to keep watch on the poachers. But I guess that too not sufficient to protect the park from poachers and hunters.
