Flood maroons Kaziranga

Flood waters continue to wreak havoc in Kaziranga. The world heritage site which is an abode of two-thirds of world's one-horned rhinoceros population, is also partially flooded and many animals have been forced to take shelter on the highlands. Rhino habitats are flooded to force the trapped animals to shift to the safer places in the nearby hills. The Park authorities are on alert to protect the wildlife from deluge and poachers by undertaking day-night vigil and patrolling on boats through the flooded park.
