Tiger Takes Refuge From Flood Inside Home in India

Playing

A tiger made itself at home in a family's house to take shelter from severe flooding.

India is battling historic flooding, with large swaths of the Kaziranga National Park underwater and animals fleeing in droves. 

Among them was a royal Bengal tiger, who took refuge inside a home near the park. The tiger could be seen lying down on a bed, calmly awaiting the waters' passage.

Officials carefully made a channel for the tiger to leave, and it did.

Elsewhere in the park, a baby rhino had to be rescued from the floodwaters. To help it recover, the tyke got bottle service in its own private suite.

And once it's feeling better, it can hopefully head back out into the wild.
