  • Indian wildlife reserve park devastated by monsoon floods

Rescuers recover carcasses of more than 225 animals, including 15 rhinos after floods ravage Kaziranga wildlife reserve.

Around 15 rhinos, 185 deer and at least one Royal Bengal tiger have died in the devastating floods that have submerged nearly the entire Kaziranga National Park in Assam state, Satyendra Singh said. "It's a heartbreaking scene", Singh said.

A top official of Kaziranga National Park said that, the flood water is starting to recede, but still 30 percent areas of the park have been inundated as on Saturday.

The second wave of floods hit the state earlier this month, submerging 25 districts and affecting over 33 lakh people.

In the northern Indian state of Bihar, at least 153 people died as swirling floodwaters submerged hundreds of villages and swept away homes made of mud and straw.

In Nepal, floods have killed around 110 people since the monsoon rains began in June.

At Kaziranga, almost 80 percent of the 430-square-kilometer wildlife park was under water. Some of the animals had crossed a highway and moved to higher land.

The first wave of devastating flood claimed 105 animals including 9 rhinos in the world heritage site last month and 503 animals died in a year ago flood. The Assam government has deployed security guards on the highway to protect the rhinos from poachers, said Singh, the park director.

The statement released on Friday also said that 41 hog deers and six rhinos were rescued by forest officials, while six rhinos are now under medical treatment.

The park had lost 105 animals during the first wave in July. That takes the total number of animals lost so far this monsoon season to 335.
