A forest officer Mohan Krishnan brought the targic incident to light after he shared an emotional note on his Facebook.

Kriti Kharbanda tweeted: "How is this possible? How does one find the strength to do this? What kind of a sick mind leads to this? We have failed her, her child and humanity! RIP."

Nimrat Kaur said: "A starving, pregnant elephant trusted the hand that fed her the death of her unborn calf and her. I wish she knew better. The bigger tragedy remains that animals the world over don't seem to give up on trusting us. Praying they learn their lessons, as I grapple for faith. #Numbed."

Randeep Hooda wrote: "An act most #inhumane to will fully feed a pineapple full of fire crackers to friendly wild pregnant #Elephant is just unacceptable..strict action should be taken against the culprits sir @vijayanpinarayi @CMOKerala @PrakashJavdekar @moefcc @ntca_india."

Singer Harshdeep Kaur expressed: "Is it so difficult to co-exist? A pregnant elephant killed by humans... oh wait.. Monsters!"

Pooja Bhatt shared: "We worship Lord Ganesha and kill and abuse elephants. We worship Lord Hanuman and get pleasure out of watching monkeys being chained & performing degrading tricks. We worship and revere female goddesses and resent strength in women,abuse,maim them and practise female infanticide."

Vidyut Jammwal tweeted: "Will this go on in the NEWWORLD post Corona?? She harmed no one, damaged nothing and yet! Human beings forget humanity while this elephant suffered for no reason. This is not an isolated case and we need to put a hard stop to this."

Patralekhaa wrote: "These people must be severely punished! So the next time when such sick minds think of committing such horrific acts they shld b scared of d law. Oh you #Elephant all u did was trust the #man, grave grave mistake. May you RIP."

Producer Ritesh Sidhwani shared: "After enduring the most inhuman act she didn't harm a single human being or crush any home.She ran in searing pain through the village.Absolutely gutted! May her soul rest in peace & the perpetrators of this horrible crime be brought to justice immediately," he shared.

"Heartless villagers of Malappuram (#kerala) fed a pregnant elephant a pineapple with firecrackers. She died standing in the river. It takes a unique kind of SICK to do this. RT for the murderers to be jailed," appealed producer Tanujj Garg.

Kunal Khemu wrote, "They say that it was people who fed this pregnant elephant a pineapple filled with fireworks. I refuse to believe that those were people. One who is capable of brutality and sadist behaviour like this is not human, can’t even call them animals as animals do not behave like this either. I can think of many words to describe them but those words won’t bring justice to the poor animal. But I really urge request and plead to the authorities to find the culprits and bring them to justice. We cannot look away from this and let it be".
