Lonely Pakistani elephant examined ahead of relocation to Cambodia

Veterinarians from an international animal rights group on Friday examined Kaavan, a lonely elephant at a Pakistani zoo, ahead of his relocation to a sanctuary in Cambodia, following years of global outcry about his poor living conditions.

Kaavan the elephant would soon be sent to the South-east Asian country to end his three decades of misery in a small enclosure at Marghazar Zoo in Islamabad, where he spent most of his life in chains.

Vets from Four Paws, a Vienna-based body, had evaluated Kaavan’s physical and emotional health to see if he was fit for air travel and stable enough for a new life with other elephants.
