Over 300 animals dead in Kaziranga National Park after two successive Assam floods

The Assam floods have brought nothing except bad news for the entire country. While over 300 people have been killed in the fresh wave of floods, animals have been the worst sufferers here. Due to flooding in the Kaziranga National Park, around 330 animals have lost their lives.

Two successive waves of floods have wreaked havoc over the state of Assam bringing nothing except misery for the residents. As per reports, the casualties includes 250 various species of deer, 22 rhinoceros, a tiger, four wild boars, along with many buffaloes as well as elephants. Not only this, at least 30 percent of Kaziranga remains submerged even now.


Two successive wave of floods had caused the Kaziranga massacre. In fact, in the second wave of floods in August, the levels of water had risen to about 10 feet wherein it had become quite a task to catch and save the animals. In the first wave of floods itself, than 100 animals had been killed.

Not only this, the infrastructure at the National Park has suffered immense damage as well. Along with anti poaching camps, many of wooden bridges have also been badly damaged along with a few even being washed away.

While rainfall activity has witnessed a decrease, it will take a while for the life of people in Assam to come back to normal as many areas continue to remain inundated.
