In Thiruvananthapuram, A pregnant wild elephant originally belonging to Silent Valley National Park (SVNP), Palakkad, met with a tragic death after a hooligan fed it a pineapple packed with firecrackers inside, which must have been allegedly used as a snare to catch wild boars. The injured elephant remained calm though she was under excruciating pain and didn’t create any havoc much to the disbelief of the forest department officials. But in a rare instance, the elephant died at Velliyar River, Malappuram, on May 27, in a standing position with its trunk in the water.
Justice needs to be served and these hooligans have to be punished for their inhuman act. Violence against animals has been reaching peaks in India and this needs to stop. We have to put an end to this together, and live and let live, peacefully.
