The rescue efforts have been commendable, with authorities saving 99 animals, including 84 hog deer, 3 swamp deer, and 2 sambar. However, the park’s challenges persist, as 70 out of its 233 forest camps remain underwater.

The flood situation in Assam has turned increasingly grim, with six more fatalities reported on Monday, bringing the total death toll to 72 as of July 8, 2024.

Rescue operations are ongoing, with teams from the NDRF, SDRF, Fire & Emergency Services, local administration, Indian Army, and paramilitary forces working tirelessly across the state. The floods have caused significant loss of life, extensive damage to infrastructure, road closures, crop destruction, and livestock loss, leaving hundreds homeless and unsettled.
