#Repost @tedthestoner . We all would urge @cmokerala to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice for this heinous crime. • 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. This elephant was going to give birth 18-20 months later. Even after the elephant was injured, she did not crush a single home or hurt a single human being. She just stood in a river because of the excruciating pain and passed away without hurting a single soul. 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. Artwork by Bratuti.

“We’ve failed; again! It pains me to see the way we‘ve been treating all elements of nature. When will these monsters realize that this planet belongs to everyone equally? We‘ve to learn to COEXIST! Let’s raise our voice against these acts of violence. This must end, or we’ll pay!” Shilpa Shetty Kundra tweeted.

Whereas actress Dia Mirza who is also an active member of wildlife India’s community, shared a petition to initiate criminal charges against those responsible for the killing of the elephant.

“Criminal charge against those who killed the pregnant elephant ·  I have signed this petition, I hope you will too,” tweeted Dia.

On May 23, a hungry, pregnant elephant wandered off in a small town of Kerala where she ate a pineapple filled with firecrackers. Deemed as an accident in the village where farmers protect their crops from being eaten with crackers filled fruits, the event has created a roar on social media with demands of justice against the cruelty.
