Kaavan the ‘world’s loneliest elephant’ bound for happier new home in Cambodia

For 35 years, Kaavan languished in a state of neglect at Pakistan’s Marghazar Zoo, where he was malnourished and often in mental distress

The “world’s loneliest elephant” is set to leave Pakistan for better conditions on Sunday, after years of lobbying by animal rights groups and activists.

Kaavan’s new home will be a sanctuary in Cambodia, said Martin Bauer, spokesman for global animal welfare group Four Paws International, which has led the charge to save the animal since 2016.

Four Paws, which often carries out animal rescue missions, will accompany Kaavan to the sanctuary.
