We study the cutoff for the cosmic-ray neutrino, set by the scattering with cosmic background neutrinos into dark sector particles through a neutrino portal interaction. We find that a large interaction rate is still viable, when the dark sector particles are mainly coupled to the τ-neutrino, so that the neutrino mean free path can be reduced to be O(10) Mpc over a wide energy range. If stable enough, the dark sector particle, into which most of the cosmic-ray neutrino energy is transferred, can travel across the Universe and reach the earth. The dark sector particle can carry the energy as large as O(EeV) if it originates from a cosmogenic neutrino.
