As per reports, the WTI have also sent a team to rescue the the magnificent feline from its current plight.
The big cat had apparently snuck into the house to escape the fury of floods in the State which have killed both men and animals.
Upto 95% of the great sanctuary for animals, the Kaziranga National Park, has been submerged underneath flood waters, with the animals having no other option but to move out to human-inhabited areas.
Floods have taken a toll on the animals in Assam’s Kaziranga National Park as wildlife continues to bear the brunt of the deluge.
Over 50 people lakh people in the State have been affected due to the floods in the State.
