Cher arrived in Pakistan to help with the relocation of Kaavan, also known as the World’s Loneliest Elephant, who is going to get transferred to better conditions. Kaavan is set to leave Pakistan for a sanctuary in Cambodia on Sunday, as told by Martin Bauer of Four Paws International, a global animal welfare group that has led the charge to save him since 2016.
Cher has been one of the voices fighting for his resettlement as the profound conditions have led to him being malnourished, overweight, and also suffers from behavioral issues. Kaavan’s nails were examined, and the results showed them as cracked and overgrown — the result of years of living in an improper compound with flooring that damaged his feet. Veterinarian Dr. Amil Khalil has been making sure that he is ready to leave for the past three months, even has an emotional attachment to Kaavan now.
He also added that he has pampered, protected, and helped the elephant get into a phase where he becomes more relaxed so that the journey to Cambodia is much better.
“Celebrities lending their voices to good causes are always welcomed, as they help starting public discourse and raising pressure on responsible authorities,” he said.
“Around the globe, there are animal lovers, famous and not famous, and the support of every single one of them is crucial,” he added too.
