Kalcheni, India, September 14, 2008-- Caught! Wildlife officials captured a rhino, that strayed from Manas National Park. A radio collar allowed the officials to track it for two weeks.

"We were waiting for an opportune place to tranquilize it," Mohan Chandra Brahma, a wildlife warden, told the Associated Press.

The animal is part of a program to repopulate a rhino population wiped out by poachers. The one-horned rhinoceros is an endangered species, according to the IUCN.
