Photo fu­els de­bate on bat­tle for land

Global Times - Weekend - - WORLD -

A pho­to­graph of an ele­phant and her calf flee­ing a mob, fire bombs at their feet, has sparked a de­bate in In­dia about the ris­ing con­flict be­tween hu­mans and an­i­mals for land.

The pic­ture won Bi­plab Hazra, the award for wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher of the year from one of In­dia’s Sanc­tu­ary Na­ture Foun­da­tion. One of the judges said the pic­ture “con­veys to­day’s re­al­ity, where an­i­mals that we once prayed to as gods, we are now throw­ing fire­balls at.”
