The elephant kept in a small place in the zoo of Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, will now be released. This elephant named Kavan was forced to live in worse conditions for 35 years. Animal activists from all over the world were running campaigns to leave him. People have named it 'the loneliest elephant in the world'. There is every possibility that it will be sent to Cambodia. One reason for this is that conditions are much better for elephants in Cambodia. Kavan will be able to get both atmosphere and companions there.
