The tale of Kaavan; a male Asian elephant that spent a huge chunk of his life in Islamabad zoo is widely popular both locally and internationally.
Back in 2019, American singer and the ‘Goddess of Pop’ Cher accomplished a milestone when her campaign to free Kaavan became successful and the elephant got freed. Immediately after the Pakistani court ordered freedom for the lonely elephant, Cher tweeted; “We have just heard from Pakistan High Court that Kaavan is free. This is one of the greatest moments of my life.”
A year later, the singer shared another update regarding the elephant, who will soon be moving to Cambodia in a travelling crate adorned in Pakistani truck art.
“Ahhh, Kaavan’s travelling crate and home when he gets to Cambodia. It’s like a dog crate – a very huge dog crate. In beginning, it will make him feel safe and comfortable. Can’t wait to sing to him on way to Cambodia,” Cher wrote.
