Poachers Viciously Kill Rhinoceros - Get Dose Of Karma

Ivory poachers thought they would get rich quick when they broke into a wildlife sanctuary in India to slaughter a rare rhino for its horn, however, the plot cost two of them their lives.

According to MailOnline, the two poachers were shot dead by forest officials inside the sanctuary after a gunfight at the scene of the rhino’s death. The one-horned rhinoceros was found with its horn hacked off and did not survive.

The Indian rhinoceros, or one-horned rhinoceros, is the second largest mammal in Asia. It’s population has dwindled because of excessive hunting. Rhino horns are harvested so they can be used in medicines or used as display pieces to show status and wealth.

Security guards heard gunshots early in the morning and found eight poachers in their sanctuary who hunt the sole rhino down. Forest officials and poachers engaged in a gunfight at the scene, where two of them were killed. The remaining six poachers fled.

Ninety-three of the world’s 3,000 rhinoceros call the sanctuary home. The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is 28 miles east of the city Guwahati in the northeastern state of Assam, MailOnline reports.
