Amazingly, the senate agreed: Kaavan should be in a sanctuary.
"It's been a year of struggle but we have finally had success," Khan told The Dodo. "The chairman of the Pakistani senate has decreed that Kaavan must be transferred to sanctuary! I can't believe it!"
Thanks to the people who spoke for him, the elephant who spent most of his life in chains, unable to move more than a few steps, will finally walk free.
"I wrote Kaavan's petition nearly a year ago with the hopes of just getting Kaavan's story out there," Khan said. "I didn't know what to expect. I'm so grateful to our Free Kaavan team for working so hard, together we were able to accomplish what many told us was impossible."
