If any of you haven’t already heard of Anne prepare to be appalled.
Anne is an elderly, arthritic Asian elephant who is the property of a Bobby Roberts Super Circus. She has spent 50 of her 57years in captivity and if the 3 weeks that Animal Defenders International (ADI) spent during an undercover investigation are anything to go by thenit is doubtful that these were happy years. During this investigation the poor elephant was witnessed being hit by a metal pitchfork and kicked about the face and body 48 times by the workers at the circus. These workers were also seen spitting on a camel and beating miniature ponies and horses on numerous occassions. You will surely agree this is a truely horrific ordeal for these poor animals made to parade about for our so called ‘entertainment’. You can read more about this appauling story here.
This could look up for dear old Annie though, ADI have offered to rehome her and you can help! Just pop on over to the Animal Aid website (here) and send a quick message to your loal MP and persuade them to help this great cause of saving the last circus elephant and ensuring her last years with us are truely happy ones. If you don’t know who your MP is or how to contact them there is a link on the Animal Aid website which will help you! I think it’s time we said enough is enough, this type of disgusting behaviour should not be allowed to continue to Anne or any other animal. Please take 5 minutes out of your day to help Anne.
