In a horrifying and cruel incident, a pregnant elephant in Kerala breathed her last after locals fed her a pineapple stuffed with crackers. The brutal killing took place on May 27 in Malappuram, Kerala. After the incident came into knowledge today, it sparked off outrage on social media. Bollywood celebrities along with social activists condemned the act and demanded strict action against animal cruelty. 

Shraddha Kapoor, who leaves no stone unturned when it comes to the protection of animals, shared an artwork on her Instagram account to narrate to the horror of the elephant's unfortunate death. "A pregnant elephant was fed cracker stuffed pineapple by unidentified people in Kerala which exploded in her mouth and damaged her jaw. She walked around the village and finally passed away standing in a river. We keep searching for monsters hoping they would be having the devil's horns on their heads. But look around you, the monsters walk beside you. From anybody who throws stones at a stray dog to anybody hurting a living soul, choose one face. A lot of these animals trust human beings because they have been helped by them in the past.
This is cruel beyond measure. When you lack empathy and kindness, you do not deserve to be called a human being. To hurt someone is not human. Just stricter laws won't help. We need a decent execution of the law too. Until the guilty are punished in the worst possible way, these wicked monsters will never fear the law. Though it's a difficult task, I hope they are able to find out the one who committed this crime and punish them accordingly.

While we are all battling with natural calamities like Cyclone, Earthquake and a fatal disease like Coronavirus , which we humans donot hve immediate resort to. There is something which we can act upon immediately is “HUMANITY”. As I read about the heinous act which led to a death of a pregnant elephant, I just feel where have we reached? What are we? Who are we? Humans? What kind of joke it can be to feed cracker stuffed pineapple to a living being? Its extremely disheartening Amidst things which we cant control, there is something which we definitely can- our own thoughts, our own actions! The perpetrators who committed such an act, should be punished. @cmokerala . #humanityfirst #eachlifematters #behuman #bekind #savelives #savetheanimals

The elephant who was wandering in the village for food, was fed the pineapple with crackers. After the crackers exploded in her mouth, she headed towards a waterbody and succumbed to the injury inside water.
