Assam Floods:  Tiger's "Bed N Breakfast" In Home After Kaziranga Flooded 

New Delhi: At Assam's Kaziranga park, a Royal Bengal tiger looked incongruous lying on a bed in a photograph that emerged on Twitter on Thursday, where floods have left many animals dead or displaced from the world-renowned national park.

Apparently, the tiger had strayed out of the flooded national park and somehow ended up in a house near the national highway.

The Wildlife Trust India tweeted an image that shows the tiger lying down on what appears to be a bed, peering from a hole ripped into the wall.

 

Many people on the twitter noticed that the animal was tired and hungry after struggling in the floods. The owner was alerted to his surprise guest when neighbours screamed at spotting the tiger entering his premises.

Forest officials said attempts were on to tranquilize the tiger and take it to safety.

The floods have affected the state of Assam and have displaced thousands of people and cut off large parts of the state.

Forest officials say 95 per cent of the Kaziranga National Park -- home to the endangered one-horned rhino -- has been flooded. Thirty wild animals have died this week. Animals could be seen emerging out of the park to escape drowning.

It has also been reported that the flood waters have now begun receding from the wildlife reserve.

The national park is bound to the north by the river Brahmaputra and highland areas in its south. Two years ago, over 360 animals including 31 rhinos and a tiger drowned in floods.
