The painful death of a pregnant elephant in Kerala after a man fed her with a cracker-filled pineapple has enraged the people. The incident was reported from the fringe areas of the Silent Valley in Attappadi. She was allegedly given the pineapple to eliminate her. The crackers exploded in her mouth, damaging her jaw grievously.
The sheer inhuman act has angered people. Many took to social media to express their resentment over the act and demanded action against the culprits. People also came up with posters and sketches.
Here are some of the sketches:

She was a mother, she died standing in river. God will take revenge. Sin will never be forgotten never be forgiven. Culprit will see hell on this very earth.#Elephant — Ajit Kumar Jha (@AjitKum03975689) June 3, 2020
Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor demanded action against the criminals and wrote, "Authorities are investigating&I didn't tweet earlier, thinking it'd be superfluous. But Kerala must bring these criminals to book to preserve its reputation for protecting nature."
