Choudhury A. 1994.
The decline of the wild water buffalo in north-east India
Oryx 28: 70-73.

The Asiatic wild buffalo Bubalus bubalis was widely distributed in the river systems of South and South East Asia, but habitat destruction, hunting and inbreeding with domestic water buffalo have resulted in only relict wild populations remaining. Unless protection measures are intensified, the species could disappear in India within a few decades.
