Poor Annie, such abuse for 58 years, I hope she lives a much longer life to enjoy her new sanctuary.

Those cruel nasty people were lucky that Anne didn't fight back at them.She must have the ability to "turn the other cheek".

This is so sad....I hope that she has found love at the sanctuary...Bless her heart. They are gentle giants, and don't deserve being slaughtered, and abused.!!!! Thank you, Mick for this.

It sounds like this former circus owner got off lightly. Wasn't the groom in his employ after all? I'm glad to hear Annie has found a new, good home and that her arthritis has improved.

Thanks. How disgusting that he these people were not held accountable. I'm glad Anne' appears happy in her new home, and am thankful that she's safe. Someday (which may or may not be in this life), all these people (circus owners and keepers alike, including those cowards in the photos) will have to account for their behavior....I believe that.

care2 acting up again...commented and noted 3 x already

would not watch the video but am already OUTRAGED..THIS is why i am trying to take a break from care2....I get so upset, when it is just how it long as their are humans and money, animals will continue to be exploited for profit. I cant believe another stupid judge, (YEAH I SAID IT), is allowing blatant abusers to walk free.

people need to STOP supporting circuses..

the local paper here had a front page story advertising a circus and "amazing Asian elephant and Siberian tiger acts"...I wrote to the author and explained why he should do a story or even a series on what happens behind the scenes..the response? nothing..

get ran into arbys to use the restroom and they had circus coupons on top of the tray counter which covered the garbage cans.....I wanted to throw them out but turned them around instead so they faced a how long it took for them to notice.. :) HA!

Mr Roberts needs to be taken out to the wood shed and beaten to a pulp. Once again, not enough animal protection
