"A mahout guides a forest department elephant to demolish power cable poles on the periphery of the Kaziranga National Park, northeastern Assam state, India, on September 19, 2016"

From the pictures of the week:

Authorities ordered the demolition of around 300 houses in three villages to evict people living on the periphery of the rhino sanctuary to stop rampant poaching of the rare animal, a top police official said. Two people were killed and several others were injured Monday when villagers clashed with police while protesting the demolition of their homes.
