A tiger from Assam’s renowned Kaziranga National Park (KNP) strayed into an
adjacent village and injured a man today, official sources said.

The tiger came into the house of the victim, Babul Ali, at Panbari, adjacent to the rhino homeland KNP in Golaghat district, to eat the goats he owned.

When Ali tried to drive away the big cat and save his animals, the tiger pounced on him inflicting several wounds, the sources said.

Babul was undergoing treatment at the Bokakhat Civil Hospital and was stated to be out of danger.
