Rhino found dead in Sisuwar area of Chitwan
According to the information officer of the park, Ganesh Prasad Tiwari, a one-month-old rhinoceros baby was found dead on the banks of the Narayani river in the Meghauli region on Saturday.
He claims that the baby rhinoceros died of natural causes. ‘When the baby rhinoceros was found dead, Mau was also with him, maybe he did not leave because he was in love with the dead baby,’ Information Officer Tiwari said, ‘Our team left after reaching the spot.’
He said that the cause of death of the baby rhino will be known only after the post-mortem report.
The baby rhino died soon after its mother and son were killed by traffickers in the Kawasoti area of the park on January 20. In the current financial year, including this, 11 rhinos have died. 3 of them were killed by poachers.
