    • 1998, Jane Whitten, Tropical Wildlife of Southeast Asia, page 16,
      Anoas need undisturbed forest and cannot adapt to logged areas. The bad-tempered anoa with its sharp short horns is greatly feared, but in spite of this it is periodically suggested as a potential domestic animal. Anyone who has met with an anoa ridicules this idea.
    • 2000, Michael Alvard, The Impact of Traditional Subsistence Hunting and Trapping on Prey Populations: Data from Wana Horticuluralists of Upland Central Sulwesi, Indonesia, John G. Robinson, Elizabeth L. Bennett (editors), Hunting for Sustainability in Tropical Forests, page 223,
      The Celebes pig and, to a lesser degree, the anoa were the focus of the Wana's large game interests.
    • 2011, Colin Groves, Peter Grubb, Ungulate Taxonomy, unnumbered page,
      They reported seeing mountain anoa trophies for sale, and also a living captive animal, in the Toraja highlands; probable lowland anoas in the Gunung Tangkoko National Park on the N tip of Sulawesi, and evidence of both kinds of anoas in or near the Dumoga-Bone National Park.
