Tired tiger snoozes in family home after escaping heavy flooding in India

This is the astonishing moment an exhausted tiger was seen having a snooze on a bed in a garage after desperately seeking shelter during heavy floods in India.

In the footage, taken in the north-eastern state of Assam, the animal is fast asleep and rests its head on its paw.

Shocked homeowner Motilal and his family spotted the beast at around 7.30am on Thursday.

Officials from the Wildlife Trust India said the tiger had been sighted near a national highway outside Kaziranga National Park when it jumped towards the garage.

The adult female tiger is one of many animals which have been approaching people's homes after monsoon rains hit the region.

'It appears the tiger strayed into a human settlement area to escape the floods and was very tired,' said park director Shiv Kumar.

The tiger was not initially disturbed during her nap - but eventually an operation was launched to safely remove her.
