Actors, actresses upset over Kerala elephant tragedy

Even as Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar has sought a report on the death of an elephant as it got injured after it was forced to eat explosive laden pineapple, many film personalities have expressed their anguish over the incident.

Trisha shared a cartoon that portrays humans in a bad light. She also mentioned that humans are the real virus. Pranitha Subhash also posted a cartoon and wrote: “What happened to humanity  #Elephant.”

Anushka wrote, “This is why we need harsher LAWS against animal cruelty!!”

“How? How can something like this happen? Do people not have hearts? My heart has shattered and broken… The perpetrators need to be punished in the STRICTEST way. @PetaIndia @CMOKerala,” Shraddha wrote on Twitter.

John Abraham shared a news report on Instagram and captioned it: “Shame on us. Ashamed to be human.”

Actor Athiya Shetty too demanded strict action.

“This is absolute barbaric. HOW can anyone have the heart to do this? absolutely disgusting, I hope action is taken. @PetaIndia,” she posted on social media.

According to Aishwarya Lekshmi, “God, just put an end to all the cruelty going on around us. Make us humane again. Praying because I don’t think anything else will work. Pure evil morons.”

Neeraj Madhav wrote:”This is heartbreaking. People like this are the reason why we’re even in this pandemic situation. When are we ever going to learn to live in harmony with nature? The people who did this should be exposed, arrested and convicted. @kerala_police should investigate this with the same seriousness of a man slaughter case. Also thank you Forest Officer Mohan Krishan for bringing this to light, we need more people like you.”

Rajisha Vijayan stated: “She stood there for hours in the water with a mouth that was totally destroyed because of the explosion and died. She didn’t harm even a single person even after being in so much pain. She was pregnant for crying out loud. Cruelty at its peak! Cannot believe that humans are capable of such heinous acts! These criminals deserved to be punished for first-degree murder!”
