The Indian wild ass (Equus hemionus khur) is a subspecies of the onager native to Southern Asia.
The Indian wild ass once ranged over western India, southern Pakistan, Afghanistan, and south-eastern Iran. Today, its last refuge lies in the Indian Wild Ass Sanctuary in Little Rann of Kutch and its surrounding areas of the Great Rann of Kutch in the Gujarat of India. Besides disease, other threats include habitat degradation due to salt activities, the invasion of the Prosopis juliflora shrub, and encroachment and grazing by the Maldhari.
