Reportedly, the viral video, which shows the rhino chases a tourist vehicle in Kaziranga National Park, was taken in the Habari zone where the rhino chased the vehicle for about three kilometres before it vanished into the forest. According to tourists, the animal suddenly appeared from a bush and started chasing them.
Just a few days ago, a video of a rhino chasing visitors in Assam was doing rounds on the internet and as per reports, it was taken in Manas National Park.
These incidents made the national park authorities as well as the wildlife enthusiasts worried about the wildlife, specifically about the rhinos. As per them, the incidents clearly show the animals’ discomfort with human involvement in their natural habitat.
Here are some of the tips to avoid such close encounters with wildlife in forests or national parks and wildlife sanctuaries:
- Do not get too close.
- Do not provoke any animal.
- Do not surprise a mother with her babies.
- Do watch for animal tracks.
- Do not feed animals.
- Most importantly, listen to the guide or the driver carefully. Do not force them to take any action.
