Anne the elephant was rescued to Longleat for rehabilitation on 3rd April 2011 from a life of suffering at Bobby Roberts circus. This was meant to be a temporary respite for Anne to gain physical health to enable her to be transferred to another location where she could be with other elephants.
Elephants are complex social animals and in the wild spend most of their day interacting in social activities. But Anne is alone, and has been since her last friends, Beverly and Janie, died at the circus in the Winter of 2001. She has spent 16 years now in total isolation from her own kind. This will affect her mental well being. Longleat has cared well for Anne but now she needs to be with other elephants.
Elephant Haven in France has agreed to accept Anne if she is to be released from Longleat, into their new elephant Haven, alongside two other elephants. She could be safely introduced to new elephant friends there.
