Islamabad (AP) — Iconic singer and actress Cher is in Pakistan to celebrate the departure of Carban, the “most lonely elephant in the world”.
Due to security concerns, the shale schedule was not announced. However, she was in talks with Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday and was expected to visit Khan later in the trip, according to someone who knew her whereabouts supporting the rescue operation.
The elephant was debilitated at the zoo for 35 years and lost its partner in 2012. Having been diagnosed by a veterinarian as both overweight and malnourished, she also has behavioral problems due to her isolation.
Carban is set to depart for the Cambodian sanctuary on Sunday, said Martin Bauer of Four Paws International, a global animal welfare group that has led prosecutions to save him since 2016.
Sher has taken up Carban’s cause and made a loud voice insisting on his resettlement. The four paws, often performing animal rescue missions, provide the necessary treatment before Carban travels and take him to the sanctuary.
After staying in Cambodia, Bauer said he would need years of physical and psychological support.
