KOHORA, Aug 2 - With every passing day, more and more carcasses of wild animals are being recovered in Kaziranga National Park, even as the flood water level is receding.
Till date as per the official information available from Kaziranga National Park authority, a total of 20 rhinos including nine calves have died. Similarly, more than 200 carcasses of hog deer and five carcasses of Asiatic Wild Buffalo have been recovered from Kaziranga. Sources further said that some more carcasses of wild animals are likely to be recovered in the next few days, with further receding of flood water level inside the park.
Meanwhile forest guards are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that poachers do not take any advantage from the current flood situation in Kaziranga. According to a forest staff of Kohora range, some wild animals including the Asiatic Wild Buffalo are roaming near the residential areas adjacent to the National Highway at Kohora because of disturbances created by human beings, when the wild animals were resting at isolated places, some distance away from human settlements.
So it is very important that people must allow these wild animals to remain calm wherever they stay instead of making a hue and cry, which further make the already stressed wild animals more ferocious and dangerous.
