    Heartwarming video footage reveals an elephant called the ‘world’s loneliest’ touching trunks with another elephant for the very first time in practically a years.

    Kaavan invested 8 years alone in Marghazar Zoo in Islamabad, Pakistan after his partner Saheli passed away in 2012.

    He was left without a house when the zoo was just recently required to close after falling on tough times and being left in a bad condition.

    The predicament of the 36-year-old elephant – who was detected as obese and malnourished by vets – provoked outrage from animal rights groups and a legal project from famous vocalist Cher.

    Following years of seclusion, he is now surrounded by his own types after discovering a brand-new house at the Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary in Siem Reap province.

    A video reveals the 9,000pound animal delighting in a revitalizing mud bath prior to being invited his brand-new neighbour Di Poh who touched trunks with him.

    A team member called Pedro stated the sanctuary’s female elephants were feeling a little overloaded by his arrival.

    He stated: ‘All three of our ladies seem a bit intimidated by him, he is a big boy. We will give them time to get to know each other, and the girls will let us know if or when they want further interaction.’

    Kaavan, who invested 35 years in Marghazar Zoo without appropriate socialisation, is among couple of adult elephants to be moved by airplane.

    He took a Covid-19 test prior to boarding a 10-hour flight to Cambodia and taking a more five-hour journey in a truck to Siem Reap.

    A representative for the Environment Ministry stated: Once Kaavan feels comfortable in a regulated setting, he will be launched in a wildlife sanctuary, in Oddar Meanchey province, in the northern area of Cambodia, where some 600 Asian elephants reside in peace and serenity.’
