The story of Kaavan, an Asian bull elephant who has languished in captivity since 1985, is another heartbreaking example of how zoos show scant regard to their animals’ quality of life, so long as they can continue using them to draw in visitors. Kaavan was captured at the age of just one-year-old in Sri Lanka in 1985: cruelly torn away from his herd in order to be displayed in Islamabad Zoo, Pakistan, where he has remained ever since. He is kept in chains day in and day out and has been completely alone since 2012 when his partner Saheli passed away from gangrene and chronic neglect.
