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

An elephant dubbed the “world’s loneliest” after languishing alone for yearsat a zoo in Pakistan has been readied for his flight to a sanctuary inCambodia and the much-needed company of other elephants.

The mammoth task ofgetting Kaavan into an elephant-sized metal box for transport took severalhours, and was perhaps the most crucial step in rescuing him from the direconditions he has lived in for 35 years.

Had Kaavan been spooked and refusedto enter the cage or bolted, his departure could have been delayed for monthswhile the rescue team sought to restore calm and trust before trying again,explained Martin Bauer, a spokesman for Four Paws International.
