Humanity has left ashamed again following the brutal killing of a pregnant elephant in Silent Valley Forest, Kerala. The very news has sparked outrage on social media. Netizens and Bollywood celebrities Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, Disha Patani, John Abraham expressed their anger over the killing of the poor animal.
Reportedly, the hungry female elephant was fed a pineapple filled with explosive crackers by some locales residing there. After chewing it the crackers exploded in the poor animal’s mouth, leaving it with serious injuries in its jaw. The elephant wandered for a while through a village in the forest with intense pain, and later collapsed to its death in a river nearby.
