Only if he had played the Tiger Assassin BEFORE the Howl, would the Assassin have been destroyed.
Since the leprechaun states that it takes its effect AFTER something has come into play, and since the assassin receives its +1 as soon as it comes into play, I would say that the Leprechaun would not be able to effect it.
Just to elaborate. Because the answer is not B, the Tiger Assassin does not COME IN as +1 it comes in and THEN receives the +1. Its important to note the difference.
