An antelope was killed and another injured while trying move to a highland as flood scene turns grim in the Kaziranga National Park.
The two animals were hit by a speeding vehicle last night when they were crossing NH 37 along the Park to move to the highlands in neighbouring Karbi Anglong district through the Mirimihi animal corridor. The injured antelope was sent to the Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation. Vast areas the national park have also been affected. Vehicular movement has been restricted from Sunday morning on NH 37, which passes through the park and which animals use to cross into the southern side on their way from the low lying areas of the park.
