Tusker Ambalappuzha Vijayakrishnan, owned by the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB), has been killed at the Sree Krishna Swami temple premises here on Thursday morning(08/04/2021). According to devaswom officials, the 51-year-old elephant had been suffering from various health issues for the past few days. That poor elephant underwent severe torture at the hands of his mahouts for several months from January 2020( completely swollen legs, injury near his eyes and various parts of the body) but none of the authority took any action against this cruelty even though few animal activists requested. Devaswom officials continuously paraded him in various temples of Kollam and Pathanamthitta districtsof kerala, which caused further deterioration of its health . Without proper food and water he he has been illtreated and tortured continuously along with the prolonged parades. The devaswom allowed the elephant’s parading at Thevalakkara last month in spite of the severe injuries allegedly inflicted on its body by the mahout. Surprisingly, the devaswom veterinarian also issued a certificate claiming the tusker was fit to be paraded. After the issue was raised with forest officials, they intervened and put a stop to the parading. The elephant was shifted back, but it was probably too late according to an activist #copied . devaswom president A Padmakumar, veterinarians who gave him fitness, his mahouts are the culprits. I am sure that Govt. of Kerala and wild life department will not take any action on this incident and  kindly join together and raise voice to give justice to the departed soul of our beloved " ambalappuzha vijayakrishnan". thanks in advance
