At the Karachi Zoo, the elephant Noor Jehan was buried.
KARACHI: Noor Jehan, an elephant who was 17 years old and had been sick for a long time and may have died because she wasn’t getting enough care at the zoo, was buried last night at the Karachi Zoo.
A Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) spokesman said that the grave of Noor Jehan was 15 feet deep, 14 feet long, and 12 feet wide. Four tonnes of lime and cleaning products were put in her grave.
The representative also said that cranes were used to lower the elephant’s body into the grave.
Noor Jehan died at the Karachi Zoo on Saturday. She had been in pain and had not been cared for for a long time. No matter how hard people tried to help her, they couldn’t.
“The elephant’s sickness had been going on since yesterday. “Everything was done to save her,” the person in charge of the animal said in a statement. The animal had been sick for a few days and had been in a lot of pain.
Noor Jehan was constantly dripped on and sprayed with water to cool her down in her last days.
Madhubala at risk
The zoo staff said that Madhubala, the other elephant, is in danger because she could get the virus from Noor Jehan, who died because of a “dangerous virus.”
The head of the Karachi Zoo, Kanwar Ayub, said that Madhubala’s move to Safari Park has been put off and that the elephant will have to go through a number of tests.
The director also said that Madhubala will be checked out and that blood samples will be taken from her. Samples of her blood will be sent to a lab in Lahore.
Ayub said that the elephant will be moved to Safari Park if her health reports are good, because Sonia and Malika may also be affected.
