Finally Islamabad’s ‘loneliest elephant’ Kaavan is free and shifted to Cambodia, On 27th November 2020, Singer Cher has tweeted a thankfull message for Prime Minister Imran Khan to shift KAAVAN to Cambodia. Kaavan is the world’s loneliest animal and now he is free.
KAVAAN was only 36 year old and the only Asian Elephant in Pakistan. A Petition of more then 200,000 signatures have been collected to free him.
According to sources the Islamabad High Court had ordered wildlife officials to consult with Sri Lanka government to find a suitable place for KAAVAAN.
