Award-winning photo of elephants fleeing to safety, shows inhumanity

Photo Credit :

This photograph was named as a ‘Hell hole’ and why not, it shows the death of humanity.

A photograph of two elephants trying to escape the flaming tar bombs and crackers thrown at them has won the Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Award. The photograph by Biplab Hazra is a proof of the unending elephant-human conflict.

According to Sanctuary Asia foundation, this sort of behaviour is quite common in Bankura district of West Bengal. Even though, India sustains 70 per cent of world’s Asian elephant species, it is shameful to see that us humans cannot protect, provide and nurture our own wildlife.

Humans have already been damaging wildlife since ages but to play with their lives just to see them suffer is another tragedy.
