Original text on this topic:
Rhinos regularly cross the Brahmaputra river and enter different parts of Sonitpur District, especially Panpur Reserved Forest, Khatonibari and even Tezpur town (the latest to appear near the town was seen in July 1995). In 1978, a female with a calf were seen in Soni-Rupai sanctuary (not a notified protected area) by the forest staff. In April-May 1990, a rhino travelled through Nameri Wildlife Sanctuary. In September 1990, two rhinos from Kaziranga travelled to Behali and Biswanath Reserved Forests along the Borgang nver up to Arunachal Pradesh. Later on the forest staff chased them to Khatonibari, opposite Kaziranga N.P.
