Elephant ‘Noor Jehan’ passes away at Karachi Zoo

KARACHI: Ailing African elephant ‘Noor Jehan’ has lost her life, Karachi Administrator Saif Ur Rehman said Saturday, as efforts to help her went in vain.

“The elephant was sick with a fever since yesterday. All-out efforts were made to save her,” the administrator said in a statement about the animal who was suffering from several health issues for the last several days.

In her last days, Noor Jehan was pin-pricked by drips and regularly doused with water to cool her down.

The administrator mentioned that the foreign vets from the FOUR PAWS International treated the 17-year-old recently as he expressed sorrow over the demise of Noor Jehan.
