This Picture Of An Elephant And Her Calf Escaping Flaming Tar Balls Is Drawing Massive Attention

They say that a photograph speaks louder than a thousand words and this picture couldn’t be more expressive about the pain that these animals go through because of the human race.

A powerful picture, titled very aptly ‘Hell Is Here’ is doing rounds on the internet and tells everything that is wrong with the human race. Captured by Biplab Hazra, the picture shows the human-elephant conflict which is a matter of major concern in various parts of the country.

The picture shows two elephants escaping from flaming tar balls and crackers that were thrown at them by the mob. The mother seems confused and the calf seems to be screaming as its leg is set on fire.

The picture has been awarded by Sanctuary Nature Foundation, a Mumbai based non-governmental organization (NGO) that works towards biodiversity conservation and community engagement.

“In the Bankura district of West Bengal, this sort of humiliation of pachyderms is routine, as it is in the other elephant-range states of Assam, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu and more,” the foundation said in a release.

The picture shows how we refuse to coexist with animals who are an equal part of the ecosystem and it’s not really their fault but ours because we are the ones who are expanding our homes, as we ruthlessly destroy theirs!

What do you think about this picture and the ruthless attitude we hold against animals?
