Artwork Floods Social Media as World Mourns Loss of Pregnant Elephant Killed By Firecracker-Laced Pineapple

1 Mins read

The death of the pregnant elephant that died after eating a pineapple filled with firecrackers has outraged people all over the world.

Check out our post featuring several tributes from heartbroken artists…

We now know the elephant’s name was Amba of Palakkad. 

The pineapple exploded in her mouth — breaking her jaw.

The incident caused Amba so much pain that she wandered into a nearby river in search of relief before dying in agony from her injuries.

Apparently, the pineapple was never meant for the elephant and it was planted as a snare for wild boars to protect the crops of local coffee plantations — but this act still goes against the Wildlife Protection of 1972 in India, which states that using snares to trap, wound, or kill animals is a cruel and punishable practice.

At Karmagawa, we’re heartbroken over the loss of Amba and her unborn baby. No animal should ever have to experience such a horrific death.
