Elephant attacked and injured by tiger 



PTI, 15th August 2009

Golaghat, Aug 14 (PTI) An elephant was attacked and seriously injured by a tiger in world-famous Kaziranga National Park (KNP), forest officials said today.

The six-year-old female elephant was attacked by a tiger in the northern part of the Park and its hind legs were injured last night, KNP director S N Buragohain told PTI.

The elephant, which had its ears torn apart in the incident, was being treated at the camp office of the Park where her condition was stated to be stable, he said.

Buragohain said a new range situated to the North of the River Brahmaputra has been added into the park, increasing its total area to 859 sq km from 430 sq km earlier.

Besides the newly added Northern range, the park earlier was divided into four range - Kohora, Bagori, Burapahar and Agaratoli -, Buragohain said.
