Due to the deforestation across India, numerous elephants can be seen wandering in the villages and communities. Numerous animals across India have been forced to encroach on human habitats in search of food and shelter, and end up wandering through villages or across crop fields, desperately trying to find a new home. However, people often take extreme measures in order to prevent these animals from damaging their property. The following photo has caught the moment when angry Bishnupur residents launch firebombs at a mother elephant and her calf as a way to stop them from wandering onto their crops. The panicking animals run across the road, terrified. The following photo shows villagers who throw stones at a herd passing through their village.
