Justice for Pregnant Elephant Killed by Exploding Pineapple Trap

Target: Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Goal: Find and punish those responsible for blowing up a pregnant elephant with an exploding pineapple trap.

A pregnant elephant was simply searching for food when she was blown up and killed by a pineapple that had been stuffed with explosives. It is suspected that the trap had been set by ranchers or hunters looking to kill wild boars in the area. However, there are some reports that the elephant may have been killed by villagers after wandering into town in search of food.

The elephant was a 15-year-old female who was 1 month pregnant. When she bit into the pineapple, the explosive device detonated, causing her jaw to explode into pieces.

“Based on the nature of its wound, we are assuming that it died due to explosives,” stated KK Sunil Kumar, Mannarkkad Divisional Forest Officer.

Although killing wildlife in this manner is illegal under India’s Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, it is not unusual for violations to occur.

Tragically, the suffering elephant was not killed instantly by the blast. Instead, she lived for a series of days, wandering the jungle with her jaw shattered in pieces. She finally settled into a river in search of relief from the flies that had infested her wounds. Eventually it was there that she succumbed to her injuries.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister Modi,

A pregnant elephant was recently killed by a pineapple filled with explosives. This tragic event occurred in Kerala’s Silent Valley National Park.

According to investigators, it is believed the explosive laden pineapple was placed by ranchers or hunters looking to kill wild boars. However, there are some reports that this act may have been perpetrated by villagers looking to keep the elephant out of their town.

Clearly, more resources are needed to properly investigate and prosecute this tragic case. Please support these efforts to your greatest ability.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

  1. Some people deserve to live in a 3rd world country.

  2. I WISH I COULD BE GOD FOR A DAY!!!!😒😞😥😥

  3. Please don’t let these evil bastards get away with this it has to STOP I would like to torture the people that did this
    Please don’t let them get away with it

  4. If this isn’t heartbreaking, I do NOT KNOW what is — leaving explosives about & around NO MATTER WHAT THE REASON should NEVER be permitted — this is a SERIOUS CRIME — think of the torturous suffering undergone by Animals, in particular, this magnificent, innocent, vulnerable pregnant ELEPHANT — Find the IDIOTS, EDUCATE them, THROW them in JAIL, ENLIGHTEN them — WHATEVER !!!! — ensure this horrific CRIME NEVER repeats — NEVER.

  5. Paul Troalic says:

    What an appalling thing to happen. It is unbelievable that any human being could inflict this cruelty on anything let alone an animal that can not tell but just sees food.
    I sincerely hope that the punishment meted out to the perpetrators is comparably severe.

  6. MAKES IT VERY HARD TO EMPATHIZE WITH HARDSHIPS OF LOCAL POPULATIONS WHO THEN TAKE NO OR LITTLE ACTSION TO PROTECT THE THREATENED ANIMALS ALREADY ON THE VERY VERGE OF EXTINCTION.

    THIS UNSPEAKABLE CRUELTY AND ABJECT LACK OF A SCINTILLA OF HUMANITY OR COMPASSION TO BAIT AN ANIMAL DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR FOOD OR WATER CANNOT BE PUT INTO WORDS.

  7. HARD TO IMAGINE MORE OF A DIGRACE AND DAMNATION OF CREATURES WHO WOULD PLAN SUCH DEPRAVITY AND DELIBERATE SUFFERING AND DEATH ON ANIMALS DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR FOOD OR WATER. THAT THESE UNSPEAKABLE SICKENING OUTAGES CONTINUE TO HAPPEN IS A TOTAL INDICTMENT OF ALL WHO FAIL TO ACT TO DEAL WITH SUCH ATROCITIES.

  8. DARWIN FAILED TO NOTE THAT NOT ALL SPECIES EVOLVE: HERE’S ONE THAT NEVER MANAGED TO GET OUT OF THE SLIME. FURTHER PROOF THAT SO CALLED “HUMANS” HAVE A MUTANT, INDEFENSIBLY EVIL STRAIN AMONG US, DEVOID OF A SOUL, AND THEMSELVES DESERVE EXTERMINATION AS THE LESS THAN VERMIN THAT THEY ARE.

    • So ashamed that humans are capable of such unconscionable cruelty. This is an act of barbarians. They need to be found and harshly punished as a deterrent to others with similar thoughts. This is an heinous crime. Hang the perpetrators high.

  9. Adam Hartley says:

    Find the motherfuckers and impale them on a fence. Killing wild boars also is unacceptable. They should use their fucking brains and come up with electrified fences, or such. Karma, for sure. Poor thing.

  10. Sergio gustavo says:

    Que asesinos HDP, tienen que tener su castigo

  11. Monstrously inhumane and Unforgivable loss of this beautiful mammal.

  12. Julia Edinger says:

    FIND THAT “EVIL EVIL BEING” SEVERELY PUNISH THAT MURDER ASAP!!!

    R.i.p. poor precious soul’s 😭😢🙏🏼💜

  13. Harry Anchan says:

    They should be looking at other means of deterrence – such as electric fence. Killing a poor, hungry animal will earn these scumbags a special place in hell.

  14. find the killer and stick the explosives down his throat. Tit for tat, an eye for and eye.
    Or, just tie him down on a big ant hill. Karma will take care of the rest!!

  15. Vinid Mathew George says:

    It was really hard to hear the sad news.. I do not know why people are so cruel..

  16. Nena Miller says:

    What a group of loser asshole psychopaths

  17. Diana Reid says:

    This makes me cry every time I see it! Why such cruelty? These villagers have infringed upon the elephants’ land, depriving them of their natural food and habitat, so they torture them to death to get them out of their way! I wish the elephants would arrive en masse and stamp the villagers out of there, as these scum don’t deserve to live!

  18. This is an EXTREMELY SERIOUS ENVIRONMENTAL CRIME! These VILE HUMAN MONSTERS MUST be either IMPRISONED for life or sentenced to DEATH! They are a totally WORTHLESS DEVILS with one thought in mind, namely to ABUSE and KILL other,  INNOCENT and PRECIOUS creatures. DEATH PENALTY to ALL DESENSITIZED, DEHUMANIZED, SADISTIC and PSYCHOPATHIC SCUMBAGS. They MUST BE PROSECUTED to the full extent of the law!

  19. Gail Coates says:

    Cruel bastards don’t deserve to breathe on this earth.

  20. This is barbaric. These people need hung from a tree that did horrific animal torture . I can not even imagine the pain this poor elephant went through. Horrible
