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)
