The Great Indian Hornbill is designated as vulnerable

Animal rights activists and netizens equally have slammed the video. The three suspects were taken into custody and turned over to the wildlife division for further investigation. Parts of the hornbill have been found, as well as the weapon used.

Since 2018, the IUCN Red List has designated the Great Indian Hornbill as vulnerable. The Wild Life (Protection) Amendment Bill 2021 controls the protection of wild animals, birds, and plants, as well as attempts to expand the number of species protected by law.

However, bail will not be granted to the three people arrested.
