Flood in Assam inundates wildlife in Kaziranga National Park

Golaghat, Aug 27 (ANI): Flood water from river Brahmaputra inundated major parts of a wildlife sanctuary, Kaziranga National Park (KNP) and rose to danger level in many areas of Golaghat district of Assam. The park authorities have strengthened security as poachers take advantage of the floods to kill animals, particularly one-horned rhinos which, during the floods, stray outside the park. The rhinos and other animals normally go towards the Karbi Anglong Hills looking for dry, higher grounds. The water level has almost inundated the entire parkland causing most of the wild animals to stray over Karbi Hills, making their lives vulnerable to poachers and speeding vehicles. Aug 27, 2014
