...The Lahore Zoo can not take care of an elephant properly which lead to the early demise of precious Suzi, a beautiful Sweet Girl.
Due to a shortage of funds and the unavailability of African elephants, Suzi was made to live alone throughout her life at the zoo. Suzi died on 13 May 2017 at young age of 32.
The African bush elephant was brought to the Lahore Zoo in 1992 when she was six years old, just when her tusks began to grow. Since the day she set her foot in the Lahore Zoo until the day she died, Suzi never got to see a member of her own species.
Suzi was unable to sit during the last three days and kept standing for almost 98 hours until Saturday afternoon, when she finally sat down and breathed her last in the evening.
This is the time we all should understand wild Animals are not born to live in Captivity. Elephant’s Life span in wildlife is around 60-70 years, but we took Suzi’s life at young age of 32.
Suzi died because of the zoo's mistakes. Like every other Zoo Animal death in Pakistani, Administration never gave postmortem reports. Suzi’s death will remain a mystery.
Proper care and management of an elephant require specialized veterinarians, wellness checks, and proper food among so many other requirements.
The Lahore Zoo, Pakistan failed Suzi.
They must never be allowed to own another elephant.

Please, let us not fail to mention Kaavan, stuck for over 30 years in a small, hot enclosure in the Islamabad Zoo in Pakistan.
Kaavan has never known life in the wild, as he was only a year old when he arrived in Pakistan. He is alone, chained, and beaten. Please sign for him as well. Thank you!
