Now, pregnant cow's jaw blown off by explosive in Himachal
Shimla, June 06: When the country still in mourning over the killing of pregnant elephant killed by pineapple stuffed with crackers in Kerala, a similar incident has come to light in Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh.

The fresh act of animal cruelty comes days after the horrific incident of the pregnant elephant's in Kerala's Palakkad death by eating a pineapple stuffed with crackers.
