Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016. Splitting the catch. Sometimes it’s the fishing boats that look for the killer whales and humpbacks, hoping to locate the shoals of herring that migrate to these Arctic Norwegian waters. But in recent winters, the whales have also started to follow the boats. Here a large male killer whale feeds on herring that have been squeezed out of the boat’s closing fishing net. He has learnt the sound that this type of boat makes when it retrieves its gear and homed in on it. The relationship would seem to be a win-win one, but not always. Whales sometimes try to steal the fish, causing damage to the gear, and they can also become entangled in the nets, sometimes fatally, especially in the case of humpbacks. The search for solutions is under-way, including better systems for releasing any whales that get trapped. (© Audun Rikardsen / Wildlife Photographer of the Year)

Venezuelan Food Shortages Force Many to Abandon Their Pets. Sonrisa is pictured at the Famproa dog shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela, on August 16, 2016. "Sonrisa (smile), was given that name, because when someone approached her, she was frightened as if she were being beaten, but showing her teeth as if were smiling," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter. Sonrisa died the following week after the photo was taken. (Carlos Garcia Rawlins / Reuters)
The lack of available and affordable food in Venezuela has led to an increasing number of pets being dropped off at shelters, or simply abandoned in the streets.
