Let’s Help Nosey to Retire Permanently

Thank you to all of you who have spoken up for Nosey, the elephant. If we all stick together and speak up there is a chance of giving Nosey a life in freedom.

_Other animals have also suffered in Liebel’s neglectful hands—the USDA has cited Liebel for keeping Reggie the spider monkey in “extremely dirty and soiled” enclosures, leaving him tethered dangerously to a pony, and allowing him to escape for six weeks. In 2013, Liebel was ordered to pay a $7,500 penalty and to cease and desist from violating the law following nearly three dozen charges of violations of the Animal Welfare Act.

Nosey cannot suffer any longer. Please join PETA today in politely urging the FWC to revoke Liebel’s captive wildlife permits and elephant ride authorization.”

Success for Nosey – for Now!

Thank you to all of you who spoke up in Nosey´s favor! Now the pressure needs to be on the owners to let Nosey retire completely.

“After hearing from PETA about the plight of the suffering elephant Nosey, city officials in Decatur, Texas, informed the Family Fun Circus, which was reportedly set to feature Nosey during its scheduled appearance this week in the city, that it would not be allowed to exhibit her! This means an all-out victory in Texas, as all the venues in the state that were planning to host Nosey this week have canceled her appearances.

Thank you to everyone who took action. Because of you, Nosey was spared a week of exhausting and painful circus performances.”

Thank you for spreading the word on animal awareness!

Nosey Is Crying For Help – This Elephant Needs Help Urgently

You would think that by now Nosey was saved from abuse. But no, Nosey still is being abused even though Nosey obviously is pain, can barely hold up and needs to be taken out of this extremely unhealthy situation. Please spread the word:

Saving one animal at a time seems not to be working here. Even though PeTA has already collected so many signatures the elephant named Nosey still has not been rescued. But it is not time to give up but to gather strength. Please help:

“Week after week, Nosey the elephant’s exhibitor, Hugo Liebel, has forced her to give rides, even though she is likely suffering from life-threatening arthritis. According to a board-certified zoo veterinarian and elephant expert, Nosey’s case is “the worst, most prolonged, documented example of an uncorrected case of suffering and abuse in an elephant I have ever reviewed.”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has all the evidence in front of it, and more than 160,000 people have urged the agency to confiscate Nosey and revoke Liebel’s exhibitor’s license. But in a meeting with PETA representatives on September 29, the agency made clear that it has no plans to help Nosey anytime soon, even though her life is at risk.”

Please sign the petition, share it, reblog it, send it to as many of your friends as possible:

If an Elephant Could Speak the Human Language He Could Teach at the University … Humane Education

As long as people speak up they have the chance to change the way others think. In this case the way an institution treats other beings. It sometimes just takes a couple of minutes to change the life of another being to the better forever.

“Texas A&M University boasts that its core values are excellence, integrity, leadership, respect, and selfless service—but these qualities are absent as the university moves forward with plans to continue an archaic tradition of exploiting elephants and supporting an industry of cruelty and abuse. The Elephant Walk, an event designed to pay homage to exiting seniors, has traditionally hosted a live elephant. Join PETA in urging Texas A&M to wake up to the age of compassion for others!”
