Assam floods: Kaziranga animals in danger, 17 already die

Agency News

As the Assam flood worsened, the famous animal park of Assam, the Kaziranga National Park, was submerged and led to the death of around 17 animals.

People in the nearby area are being threatened by another unusual menace: loose wild animals that move out of the national park after the heavy flooding. Animals continue to move towards a safer place as about 80 per cent of the Kaziranga National Park and 95 camps are underwater.

Recently, a Royal Bengal Tiger took shelter inside a local resident's house in Bagori, after moving out from Kaziranga National Park. Locals have been alerted after heavy flooding destroyed enclosures at Kaziranga National Park.

In search of a shelter, one-horned rhinoceros and other wildlife took shelter at the nearby elevated area. But still the survivals of these animals are in danger due to the lack of food.
