GOLAGHAT (ASSAM) Over 540 animals, including 13 rhinos, have perished in the world-famed Kaziranga National Park in Assam during the current wave of floods, perhaps the worst-ever to hit the Park in recent history. 

    Hog deer are the worst hit with 465 of them succumbing to the flood waters which has inundated nearly 80 per cent of the Park's area. 
    According to the latest official update, the other casualties include 10 swamp deer, 28 wild boars, five porcupine, 16 sambars and two each of python, wild buffalo and hog badgers. 
    The death toll was expected to rise further with the water level receding in the UNESCO WorldHeritagesiteandmorecarcassesarebeing recovered daily, Park Director Sanjib Bora said on Friday.
