A rare rhino (Tapir) was found near Nine Village in Mawtaung Town in Taninthayi Township on 22 November. The rhino was found by a local named U Aung Moe Soe (aka) U Aung Aung, 28, on his farmland. He informed the relevant authorities from Taninthayi township. On 30 November, the Forest Department Head U Aung Thiha Zaw and five staffers together with Mawtaung Police inspected U Aung Moe Soe’s farmland and took necessary action.
According to the investigation, the female rhino is 6.6 feet long, 3.7 feet high and 6 feet in circumference and the tail is five inches.
The Tapir was injured in the right hand, and she could not walk. She is undergoing medical treatment. Then, the township forest department brought her to their office on 1 December 2020 with their department arrangement. As soon as she arrived at the department, the township Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department will continuously provide the treatment. When she gets well, she will be sent to the department concerned.—Nam Thar Yi-Htein Win (IPRD) (Translated by Hay Mar)
