The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) said it was unfortunate that those who actually abused Anne the elephant could not be prosecuted. Spokeswoman Jody Gordon said:
Anyone looking at this shocking footage can see how this poor elephant suffered, and this clearly spells out how completely unacceptable this is.
It is only a pity those physically beating Anne in the film footage could not be prosecuted also.
