CNP team revisits India to rescue another rhino

RATNANAGAR, CHITWAN: A team from the Chitwan National Park (CNP) has been looking for another rhino swept across the Indian border in recent floods. The team entered the Indian land after they received information of spotting a one-horned rhino this morning.

The CNP team had returned just two days ago after a long running rescue operation that saw six rhinos being rescued from the Indian territories.

The Indian Balmiki Tiger Reserve officials tipped off the CNP that they had sighted a male rhino in an area located five to six kilometres south of Nepal -India border. The Nepali team took off this morning after receiving the information, according to CPN Information Official Nurendra Aryal.

The team includes vets along with the technical staff. The CNP has already rescued six rhinos in a time span of 10 days.
