A Plea for Justice: A Poem by CurrentKids Aliya Shetty Oza

A couple of weeks ago, a pregnant elephant standing in a river in Kerala ate a pineapple that had been stuffed with firecrackers, and died. The trap had been laid for wild boar, probably because the wild boar are a nuisance to farmers and their crop. It is a telling tale of the conflict between animals and man as we encroach on more and more natural territory.

This is a poem that Aliya has written about this horrible incident.
