Last September, authorities in Assam's Cachar district rescued eight rare animals, including a black macaque and gorillas, believed to have been smuggled from Myanmar. Among the rescued animals were two Panamanian white-faced capuchins, two common opossums, four black gorillas, and the black macaque, all of which were handed over to forest department officials.

Additionally, in April 2023, seven spider monkeys and two black and white ruffed lemurs were rescued from a vehicle near the Assam-Mizoram border.
