KERALA: Forest Officer Shares A Gruesome Story Of The Elephant’s Death And Twitter Tells Us Why The Pineapple Was There!

A torture no living being should have ever gone through!

Disturbing images and videos from the beautiful elephant’s last moments are circulating and it is completely heartbreaking. Many have even shared pictures of the baby elephant that was brought out of the 15-year-old mama. Forest officer Mohan Krishnan was the one who initially spoke out about the incident that had actually occured in May.

Here’s his full story: “She trusted everyone. When the #pineapple she ate exploded, she must have been shocked not thinking about herself, but about the child she was going to give birth to in 18 to 20 months.

So powerful was the cracker explosion in her mouth that her tongue and mouth were badly injured. The elephant walked around in the village, in searing pain and in hunger.

She was unable to eat anything because of her injuries. She didn’t harm a single human being even when she ran in searing pain in the streets of the village. She didn’t crush a single home. This is why I said, she is full of goodness.

The elephant eventually walked up to the Velliyar River and stood there. Photos showed the elephant standing in the river with her mouth and truck in water, perhaps for some relief from the unbearable pain.

The forest officer said she must have done this to avoid flies and other insects on her injuries.
The forest officials brought two captive elephants, who were called Surendran and Neelakanthan, to lead her out of the river. But I think she had a sixth sense. She didn’t let us do anything.

After hours of attempts by the officials to rescue the elephant, she died at 4 pm on May 27, standing in water. The elephant was taken back inside the forest in a truck, where the forest officials cremated her. She needs to be given the farewell she deserves.
For that, we took inside the forest in a lorry. She lay there on firewood, in the land she played and grew up.

The doctor who did her post-mortem told me that she was not alone. I could sense his sadness though the expression on his face was not visible due to his mask. We cremated her in a pyre there. We bowed before her and paid our last respects.”

However, many on social media raised questions like, “How did people know the elephant would come in?” And some went on to say, “The pineapple wouldn’t have been for the elephant.”
