Assam Forest dept upbeat over rhino translocation

By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, June 30 (PTI) - After the initial jitters and bureaucratic delays, the Assam Forest department is now upbeat over the prospect of more translocation of the highly endangered one-horned rhinos among its forests once important tranquilisers are obtained.

"Yes the drugs have finally arrived in New Delhi and our zoo divisional forest officer Narayan Mahanta will soon leave to get hold of it," Assam's Chief Wildlife Warden Suresh Chand told PTI here.

Confirming that after the initial launch of the project in 2008, there was a delay due to unavailability of the drugs, Chand said finally the wait is over.

"There are lot of bureaucratic rules and regulation to get the drug from South Africa which is the only country in the world where it gets manufactured," he says.
