All humanity needs to hang its head in shame for an inhuman exploit that took place on May 27 in Malappuram, Kerala. A 15-year-old pregnant elephant was fed a pineapple stuffed with crackers. The fruit exploded in the elephant’s mouth ripping off a part of its face and tongue & the innocent died a slow and painful death due to the injuries.

Sadly, there are much more heart-wrenching incidents of animal cruelty that are not even reported. Though, Cruelty against animals is a cognizable offence under Section 428 and Section 429 of the Indian penal code but the implementation of laws made for the protection of animals is deplorable.
