Images of  burnt animals due to Bandipur forest fire

Verification: Images of burnt animals are not from Bandipur forest

Today evening me and my daughter were discussing some topic related to the project she is working on. All of a sudden she got few images on her whatsapp claiming that the images are from Bandipur forest. Due to fire these animals are burnt. I immediately opened my laptop and looked for these images on Internet to check if they were real. Let me show you what we found.

The first picture is as follows as shared on whatsapp as burnt animals in Bandipur forest:

After the search we saw that the image was shared on twitter on 17 October 2017

Sharing the screenshot of the same post to show you what is written in english:

The screenshort of image from the link is as follows: This was published on 18 November 2018

We also located the image on Subway news

Now comes another image of Orangutan shared as whatsapp forward:


After search we found that the image is from Todayonline

The same image is found in this news link that was shared on 3rd March 2016. Screenshot from the link is as below:

In this undated picture taken late on February 2016 and released by Center of Orangutan Protection on March 3, 2016, shows the body of an orangutan after a forest fire at Kutai National Park in Bontang, East Kalimantan province.

So now we were sure the images shared were true but the claims were false. If you notice carefully, the dates of shared images are not from the year 2019. The shared articles and posts are from the previous years.These images with false claims are being circulated on various social media in 2019. Be skeptical a bit so as to reach the truth.
