This thread clarifies the situation re #ElephantDeathCase #Kerala. Also, let's use this opportunity to reflect on the situation of #wildlife in #India today
1. People did not "feed" the elephant with cracker stuffed pineapple.
2. The elephant ate the bait laid to kill wild boars.
3. 1000s of wild boars are killed every year in a similar fashion.
4. Some don't die immediately, they suffer for a few days without a face or mouth to eat.
5. This kind of baiting needs to stop.
6. Wild boar lives matter too.
7. End #cruelty towards all #animals #nonhumans.
8. It didn't happen in Malappuram.
9. Why does religion need to come into the picture?
10. #BlackLivesMatter, but please also stand up for those marginalised in #India too (#DalitLivesMatter #MinorityLivesMatter).
11. Try to understand the problem & suggest a solution #Nonhumans

#Leopards are actually the smallest among the genus of big cats. These elusive #cats prefer to hide in trees or in caves during the day.

#Leopards are not picky about their food and feed on a wide range of animals. They crouch low and sneak on their prey before attacking them.

#Porcupine vs #Leopard. Porcupines are difficult to hunt as they have needles all over their body. Only few can do that, leopards are one of them. They turn them upside down. But this one is with less experience. Old video from Africa.
Here this one from India. When a leopard killed a porcupine & taking away. This is from last year shot by Zubin.
#Porcupine body contains thousands of quills, upto 30000, which acts as defence mechanism. Each quill has a topical antibiotic. In wild only few can kill a porcupine, #leopards are one of them. But not this time. Video from net. Of this size, from my archives. Image
