India | 3 charged in poaching of endangered rhino in Gorumara NP

Three persons were arrested for allegedly killing a one-horned rhino in West Bengal’s Jalpaiguri district. Officials said the rhino was found dead at Gorumara National Park on Tuesday, with its horn chopped off, which proved it was a case of poaching.


Bengal’s Gorumara National Park has a sizeable population of one-horned Indian rhinos. An estimated 50 animals of the endangered species live in the forest reserve, according to October 2015 figures of the World Wildlife Fund.
