When I was an ignorant child of 6 my father took me to the local circus (think it was Chipperfields) Anyways, you could pay extra to visit the animal
pens. I vividly remember that the 4 or so elephants they kept, had barely enough room to turn around in their individual pens...which onbiously were
part of a trailer for transportation purposes. Their trunks were pleadingly poking out of the cages and for some reason I did feel traumatised.
What I fail to understand is WHY circuses still exist...after all, I know the romany culture has to make a living but are they qualified to look
after animals such as this in captivity? The answer is clearly NO! It's like putting a child in charge of a control tower in an airport...The two
just don't go together....and if this so called Circus has been 'inspected' for animal welfare then there's something very wrong with the laws of
animal welfare. I say absolutely BAN ALL CIRCUSES they are victorian, barbaric and it's time people made a stand and refused to go to them.
I would love it if Anne was now rescued to live out the rest of her life even if in a Zoo (which I also don't agree with but that's another story)
but at least she might have more normality- Where's Rula Lenska when you need her? she was an avid campaigner for elephants!!...I implore you all in
UK to get her taken away from that monster who owns the circus....Nice to see he got a publicity shot with her just to make eveything look ok...Wonder
when that was taken?...Unfortunately , I live in Canada and what I would do to that guy is unprintable...However I would be in a long queue...Good
luck to you all for trying to get Anne away from those monsters if you can!..He thinks he's untouchable but theres video proof...Please
