Cher greets ‘world’s loneliest elephant’ upon arrival in Cambodia

Cher greeted Kaavan, also known as the “world’s loneliest elephant,” in his new home after fighting to help transfer the animal to a sanctuary in Cambodia.

The “Believe” singer was recorded holding a white rose as she awaited for Kaavan to arrive in Cambodia from a Pakistani zoo, where he suffered years of malnourishment. Due to severe negligence, the animal reportedly also had other physical problems like cracked nails and behavioral issues.

In May, Pakistan’s high court ordered the closure of Marghazar Zoo in the capital of Islamabad, where Kaavan lived for most of his life.

When a fan called out Cher, 74, for traveling amid the coronavirus pandemic, she responded on Twitter, “I thought long & Hard about going out into Covid But Kaavan’s Freedom was a Promise I Made. On My Site I Say ‘Stand & Be Counted,Or Sit & Be Nothing’ WE ALL STOOD & WE WERE COUNTED & KAAVAN WILL BE FREE.”

According to CNN, Cher serenaded Kaavan when they first met in person in Pakistan. The award-winning singer shared a heartwarming moment with the elephant when she sang to him Cinderella’s “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes.”

Cher shared on Twitter that Kaavan’s “journey to freedom from captivity” will be featured in a documentary set to premiere in 2021 on the Smithsonian Channel.
