Uttarakhand floods: Tiger drowns as rivers swell
Nainital:  It's been raining heavily in most parts of Uttarakhand for the last one week. At least 70 people have already died in the state.

But humans apart, even the big cat has been unable to beat the flood fury. A tiger's body was found floating in the Kotabagh river near Nainital on Sunday.  

The state has received more than 1200 mm of rainfall in just a week. As a result of this, the 14 rivers flowing through Uttarakhand are well above the danger mark.
