8 people have been trampled to death by elephants in 10 days in the West Bengal state of India, and the latest victim was 35-year-old photographer, Asish Shit.
Editor's Tip: Using a tripod will help you capture better landscape photos. Not only will a tripod stabilize your camera and eliminate camera shake, but you can also use the few moments it takes to set up the tripod to look for interesting compositions that make your photo more appealing. Tripods come in all sizes and many different price points, but if you're working outdoors, it's nice to have a tripod with twist-lock legs for rapid deployment. Likewise, if you want to save weight for those long hikes you take to find beautiful spots to photograph, consider a carbon fiber tripod.
Shit, who was photographing a wild herd of 12 elephants in the forests around the Atadihi area of Sankrail, got too close to one of the elephants when the elephant broke off from the herd to charge Shit.
The photographer was rushed to the nearest hospital, but it was too late. Doctors at the Bhangagarh hospital "declared him dead on arrival," according to Arup Mukherjee, the divisional forest officer.
