Court punishes cruelty

Date

A CIRCUS owner has been found guilty of three counts of causing unnecessary suffering to an Asian elephant. Bobby Roberts was also convicted of failing to prevent an employee from repeatedly beating the animal, named Anne. The 69-year-old also failed to ensure the elephant's needs were met by not giving her medication for her arthritis.
