Dying due to poison does not sound cool.

Very sad. However, rat poison does not kill you instantly. It can take many days to die from internal hemorrhaging. It leaves the animal weakened and in a state of shock with severe internal pain. This animal probably staggered and was glassy-eyed for a while before death. This tiger suffered.

May the Almighty remember him/her.
And for whoever poisoned him/her, may you pay for the crime you committed against an innocent animal!

This could be what killed the elephants...if so now you have a pycho poisoner running loose. Maybe someone who was recently terminated from their job.
