Post- Mortem report Discloses Noor Jehan the Elephant Suffered from Broken Legs

Reports have revealed that Noor Jehan, the African elephant who recently died at Karachi Zoo, had been paralyzed for the past four months and suffered from broken back legs. The postmortem examination also indicated that the elephant did not receive adequate and timely care, leading to her inability to support her body weight.

Authorities have announced that a comprehensive autopsy report will soon be released, providing further details about the circumstances surrounding Noor Jehan’s unfortunate death.

The 17-year-old elephant received emergency treatment for a tumor in Karachi on April 5 but tragically collapsed just a few days later. Her passing has deeply saddened animal lovers and raised concerns about the treatment and care of animals in captivity.

Noor Jehan received care from international experts for her severe health issues, and a team from Four Paws, an animal welfare organization, visited her during this time. Despite initial signs of recovery, Noor Jehan fell into a pond at the zoo.

It is important to note that there were four African elephants in captivity in Karachi, all siblings. Among them were three females, including Noor Jehan and Madhubala, who resided at the Karachi Zoo. The other two, Malika and Sonu, were housed at the Safari Park. All four elephants were brought to Pakistan in 2009.
