Rhinos Threatened by Floods (VIDEO)
We’ve seen a lot about people threatened by floods in Pakistan and India. But what about animals?
This video shows scenes from the Pabitora Sanctuary in Assam, which has the highest density of one-horned rhinos in the world. Rising flood waters have caused the animals to move to high ground outside the sanctuary, where they run the risk of being shot by poachers.
In the last decade, 50 rhinos have lost their lives to poachers. The authorities are doing what they can to protect these rare animals until they can return to their homes.
