Carcasses of 12 Chinkaras, a protected animal, were today found in Bhadaria village in Rajasthan's Jaisalmer district, police said.
The animals reportedly died due to thirst and hunger and their bodies were strewn across the village in a radius of around 35 km, they added.
The matter was being further investigated, Singh added.
Chinkara (Indian gazelle) is included in the endangered species list.
