GUWAHATI: Kaziranga lost its second rhino to poachers within a span of five days, taking the toll to 16 so far this year.

Park director M K Yadav said a gang of poachers, armed with automatic firearms, gunned down the rhino in the Agoratoli forest range of Kaziranga on Friday. Yadav said the poachers managed to chop off the horn and escape from the spot.

"The poachers' faces were covered with black masks. After hearing the gunshots, our staff rushed to the spot and fired back. But the poachers escaped along with the horn," Yadav said. Sources said the poachers could be militants from the neighbouring Karbi Anglong district.
