Hell is here : Award winning photograph captures humananimal conflict

A striking photo of an adult elephant and its calf fleeing a mob attack has won a top Asian wildlife photography prize. Titled Hell is Here, the photograph was taken by Biplab Hazra in the Bankura district of West Bengal and won the 2017 Sanctuary's Wildlife Photographer of the Year award. It shows the two animals running for their lives from a crowd that had tossed flaming tar balls and crackers at them in a bid to scare them away from human settlements. The award was founded by the Sanctuary Nature Foundation, a Mumbai based non-governmental organisation that works towards biodiversity conservation and community engagement. It throws light upon the troubling conflict between humans and elephants in the populous country.
