‘World’s loneliest elephant’ ready to fly to new home

An elephant dubbed the “world’s loneliest” after languishing alone for years at a zoo in Pakistan has been readied for his flight to a sanctuary in Cambodia and the much-needed company of other elephants. The mammoth task of getting Kaavan into an elephant-sized metal box for transport took several hours, and was perhaps the most crucial step in rescuing him from the dire conditions he has lived in for 35 years. Had Kaavan been spooked and refused to enter the cage or bolted, his departure could have been delayed for months while the rescue team sought to restore calm and trust before trying again, explained Martin Bauer, a spokesman for Four Paws International.
