Adult Rhino Killed by Tigers in Kaziranga National Park

"Tigers claim as many as 15 percent of the rhino calves in Kaziranga. This carcass spoke of tigers taking down an adult - a risky enterprise rarely reported" - National Geographic Magazine, Aug-2010.

(A female rhino was killed by a pair of tigers while she was having difficulty birthing a calf. Park staff removed her horn after she died to prevent poachers from taking it)

  1. Thanks for make blog Kaziranga National Park is a remarkable success story of conservation of the one horned India rhinoceros and other wild lives in the North East India. It is not only the homeland of the great Indian one horned rhinoceros, but also provides shelter to a variety of wild lives. http://www.iwte.in/kaziranga
