2020-09-21: The expert committee formed to assist the government to shift the zoo animals, following Islamabad High Court (IHC) orders, has some reservations.“One of the experts in the committee advises against shifting the elephant to Cambodia. “He fears that Kaavan might not survive the journey, and even if it does, it will be isolated in the new home.” The government is also considering the suggestion of improving the existing living conditions for Kaavan to international standards, expanding the enclosure, and introducing other animals into the bigger space to give it company in consultation with international experts.
