In May 2009, ADI exposed the shocking abuse inflicted on the three elephants that were touring with the Great British Circus. Animals were hit in the face by both their trainer and keeper with a metal elephant hook, a broom and a pitchfork; they were kept chained and barely able to move for up to 11 hours a day; and they displayed disturbed, abnormal behaviour. As a result of our investigation the elephants were sent packing after just one season and a public consultation was held with a resounding 94.5% supporting a ban on wild animal acts and the then Labour Government promising a ban.
