Pakistan’s ‘lonely elephant in the world’, who has been facing torture for years, is now breathing in the open air. This elephant named Kavan has reached Cambodia after traveling about 4 thousand kilometers by air. In Cambodia, American superstar Cher and the rest of the elephants in the sanctuary welcomed Kavan strongly. Along with Kavan, who has seen 36 springs of his life, the zoo in Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad, was given so much ruthless behavior and inferior facilities that vigorous protests against it started all over the world.
Elephant welcomed as a new friend
Kavan, who was freed from Pakistani cruelty, met another elephant for the first time after about 8 years. This meeting of Kavan was worth seeing. Elephant became a new friend of Kavan and welcomed him by mixing the trunk with the trunk. Kavan has liked this new house of his. He drenched himself in the mud in the sanctuary of Cambodia. The caravan will not only be protected from the strong sunlight by this mud, but insects will not bite it.
Kawan appeared relaxed after reaching Cambodia and also slept for a while. Kavan will now be transported from Siem Reap to neighboring Oddar Mianche Province where he will spend his further life in a wildlife sanctuary along with 600 other elephants.
Kavan’s ‘Saheli’ dies, cruelty in Pakistan
Kavan was brought from Sri Lanka to the Zoo of Pakistan. Sri Lanka gave the Kavan Elephant in 1985 to improve relations with Pakistan. A female elephant named Saheli was brought to Bangladesh from Bangladesh in 1990 after being alone for nearly 5 years. Both Kavan and Saheli remained together till 2012. Saheli was killed in 2012, leaving Caravan alone once again. During this time, cruelty with Kavan increased in Xu of Pakistan. He was always kept in chains. The campaign to liberate Kavan intensified in the year 2016.
American singer came forward to help Kavan
Kavan’s suffering was well understood by the American singer Cher and he started the campaign on social media. His effort paid off and a court in Pakistan ordered Kavan to be moved to a better place than Islamabad in May. In October, it was announced that the Kavan elephant would be taken to Cambodia. Preparations began in November to take Kawan to Cambodia. A party was also organized in Islamabad to bid farewell to Kavan. American singer Cher arrived in Pakistan to bid farewell to Kavan. Cher also traveled to Cambodia after Pakistan where she strongly welcomed Kavan.
