70% of Kaziranga National Park inundated due to floods; travel advisory issued
Flood waters have submerged 70 per cent of Assam's Kaziranga National Park (KNP) and the animals are taking shelter near the national highway

Flood waters have submerged 70 per cent of Assam’s Kaziranga National Park (KNP) and the animals are taking shelter near the national highway that runs through the Park or are crossing it in search of dry land, prompting the park authorities to issue an advisory to heavy vehicles to avoid the stretch.

The carcass of a swamp deer , which is believed to have come out of the Park looking for dry land, was recovered near the boundary wall on Monday morning, a Forest department official said.

At least three hog deer have been killed by speeding vehicles in the Park in the current wave of floods, KNP authorities said. The forest official said a local youth spotted the dead animal and the preliminary suspicion of attempted hunting was confirmed during post-mortem.

“The female swamp deer was killed by using sharp spears while coming out of Park during night,” the official said adding a case has been registered and investigation initiated. Animals have started coming near the NH 37 that passes through the Park in search of dry land with many crossing the road to reach higher land necessitating speed control of vehicles.
