Several Bollywood celebrities have come out on social media to raise their voice against the inhumane killing of an elephant in Kerala. Many have demanded strict action to be taken against those responsible for feeding a pregnant wild elephant a fire cracker laced pineapple, reported the Times of India.
Actors including Randeep Hooda, Anushka Sharma, Shraddha Kapoor and Varun Dhawan, have demanded the government intervene so incidents like these don't take place in the future. “This is why we need harsher laws against animal cruelty!!” said Anushka in an Instagram story.
Randeep Hooda took to his Twitter handle to ask the Kerala CM to take appropriate action. “An act most #inhumane to willfully feed a pineapple full of firecrackers to friendly wild pregnant #Elephant is just unacceptable...strict action should be taken against the culprits sir,” he said.

Shraddha penned a long Instagram post where shared her thoughts on the tragic incident. "We keep searching for monsters hoping they would be having the devil's horns on their heads. But look around you, the monsters walk beside you," an excerpt from the note read.
Likewise, Dhawan also went on a long rant on Instagram about the incident, wherein he called for empathy towards animals. "This is cruel beyond measure. When you lack empathy and kindness, you do not deserve to be called a human being. To hurt someone is not human. Just stricter laws won't help. We need a decent execution of the law too," part of his note read.
