The vestigial remains of the one horned rhino lies in a swampy riverside waiting to be noticed by the forest officials.
We still don’t know whom to blame? Is it the poachers? Or is it the people who spread rumors regarding it’s prized horn?
Poaching is a sad story that is told in the darkness of the night and is revealed in the morning to the world. Sadly the victims don’t last to tell the tale. It is only their vestigial remains that speak up, seeking justice.
The vestigial remains that pray to everyone to stop poaching and many other atrocities towards animals.
(Note: The One-Horned Rhinoceros is the state animal of Assam and a prized possession of our state. But sadly it is facing the threat of extinction as rampant poaching is prevalent. Nowadays a number of steps have been undertaken to counter the same. )
