It is incomprehensible what atrocities people are capable of. In India, a pregnant elephant cow has now been killed by sadistic animal cruelty. The horrific incident took place in the Indian state of Kerala.
Pregnant elephant cow fed with explosive pineapple – dead!
Unknown people had spiked a pineapple with fireworks, which they eventually fed to an elephant cow. As she chewed on the pineapple, the explosives exploded in her mouth. “Her jaw was broken and she was unable to eat after chewing the pineapple and exploding in her mouth,” a wildlife keeper is quoted as saying. Days later, the animal succumbs to his serious injuries. It was only during the autopsy that the gamekeepers discovered that the elephant cow was pregnant.
Forest officials tried to save the wounded animal
A forestry official involved in the elephant’s rescue operation posted pictures of the animal on Facebook. The footage shows the elephant cow standing in the river. The forestry official assumes that she probably wanted to cool her wounds in the river and prevent flies and bugs from souring there. Two other elephants tried to lure them out of the river – in vain. “I think she had a sixth sense. She didn’t let us do anything,” the forestry official said. Still standing in the river, the animal finally died.
