Aww! Tired tiger takes a nap in bed after escaping floods by running into family home (photo)

An exhausted female tiger took a well-deserved nap inside a family home, after escaping heavy flooding that had destroyed its wildlife park home.

She desperately fled the Kaziranga National Park in north-eastern India, as floods took hold.

At least 92 animals from the park have died in recent days, so when she rushed into a family home and flopped on to a bed to sleep, she was left alone.

Home owner Motilal and his family spotted the tiger at around 7.30am and quickly raced outside.

The animal got comfy on a bed, resting its head on a pillow and slept for most of the day.

According to the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI), the animal was first spotted next to a road on Thursday morning, just 200 metres away from the national park.

It is thought she was scared of the traffic and sought refuge in the quiet home.
