“A young elephant by the name of Kaavan was literally taken away from its mother in Sri Lanka back in 1985 and taken to the Pakistan Islamabad Zoo. Ever since that time this baby lived in a concrete enclosure with all four legs chained, allowing for very little movement. This has been Kaavan’s entire life. Red full story at

Kaavan can do nothing more than bob his head side to side, a behavior typical of despair and depression. Because of the chains, he also suffers with several deep gashes and signs of gangrene on his lower legs. If this poor animal is not removed from this atmosphere and helped, he will not have a very long life. Living at this zoo has robbed Kaavan of the many benefits of an animal living free in the wild, like love, friendship, comfort and freedom.

Join us in our efforts to save Kaavan from this horrific zoo so that we can get him all the medical care and attention he needs and the prospect of a better life possibly in a reputable sanctuary.”

Do read carefully the link included in the petition overview. The circumstances of this poor elephant are truly heart breaking. It saddens me more than I can ever really say. How can people treat an intelligent sentient creature in such an appalling way.

Please take as much action as you can to bring an end to the suffering of this poor animal, Kaavan needs to be removed from the zoo and taken to a caring sanctuary and receive the medical help he needs.
