KAZIRANGA, April 22 - There was still no sign of the female rhino which had abandoned its calf in Bandardubi area, adjacent to Kaziranga National Park. Informing this, Director of Kaziranga National Park cum Tiger Reserve P. Shiva Kumar told this correspondent that the Forest personnel of Kaziranga National Park were doing everything possible to detect the mother rhino which had abandoned its one-month old male rhino.
Currently, the rhino calf is under care and treatment of Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation ( CWRC) at Borjuri in Kaziranga.
When enquired on any new development on evicted land in Bandardubi and Deosur, a senior Forest official informed that till today the evicted land in Bandardubi and Deosur areas had not been formally handed over to the Kaziranga National Park authority. But a few locations in the said areas have now become grazing ground for rhinos and other wild animals of Kaziranga National Park, which indicates a healthy sign as far as conservation of wild animals is concerned, said the senior official.
The areas under Bandardubi and Deosur were evicted by State government as per the order of Gauhati High Court a few years back.
