One Elephant Saved

It does not take much to help an animal in need. This elephant´s story proves that speaking up on behalf of a being who cannot speak for himself can change the world for this being:

“The Allahabad High Court issued a ruling to keep Raju the crying elephant free and in our care instead of going back to a life of shackles and abuse. We are so grateful to all the people around the world who helped Raju by donating or by signing the petition on Change.org.”

Thank you for helping this elephant!

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.”

Does a University Need an Elephant?

Many universities have traditions, most of them are fun for all. But having an elephant walk for a university? Together with the advancement of knowledge the advancement of learning should be proven here. Let the students be creative and start a new tradition – without cruelty towards other beings.

“Despite learning of the cruelty and abuse endured by elephants who are exploited for publicity stunts, Texas A&M University is moving forward with plans to maintain its archaic tradition of hosting live elephants as part of its annual Elephant Walk, an event designed to pay homage to exiting seniors. Join PETA in urging Texas A&M to wake up to the age of compassion for others!

There is no excuse for an institution of higher education to be promoting cruelty, especially among this generation of compassionate and socially aware students. Speak up for exploited elephants TODAY and ask Texas A&M to be true to its core values by compassionately carrying on its tradition without the use of a live elephant.”

Make More Noise for Nosey

Please speak up for Nosey, the tortured elephant, thank you!

A fun weekend lies ahead of many families: fall fairs are on in abundance, parents will take their children to the rides, let them have cotton candy, stroll around over the fair grounds, and … see animals being abused? Yes, there are still people who have not heard about the forms of torture used to make animals perform unwillingly in front of humans.

“Nosey the elephant is scheduled to be in Indiana this week, where she will be forced to perform with the Great American Family Circus and give rides at the Kewanna Fall Festival from September 26 through 28, despite the fact that recent video footage shows that she is in pain. Nosey needs you to speak up for her! Please urge festival organizers to cancel Nosey’s appearances immediately and to pledge never to host elephant acts again.”

From Bliss Back to Abuse?

Photo: Wildlife SOS

First, there is the good news of an animal being saved after over 50 years of abuse and torture. Not everyone agrees with anthropomorphous ways of thinking, but it is most certain that an animal freed will delight in this newly found freedom.

But going back to the ordeal is probably the worst kind of abuse.

“We rescued Raju after he spent approximately 50 years chained up, beaten, and help captive by beggars in India. His rescue story went viral online because this abused elephant was crying tears of joy when he was finally set free in a loving environment at our elephant sanctuary.

At the time of his rescue he was near death. He was emaciated, dehydrated and exhausted. Despite his frailness, he was forced to beg on the streets and was being kept in spiked chains.

Now the cruel person who had illegal custody of him is trying to get him back through the Allahabad court. You helped free him once by supporting Wildlife SOS campaigns and our sanctuaries.”

Make Noise for Nosey

Photo: PeTA

Photo: PeTA

This elephant has been mistreated, abused, tortured, and tormented for the most part of his life. It is time to stop this, please help.

“For Nosey the elephant, every step must be excruciating. Week after week, Nosey’s exhibitor Hugo Liebel has forced her to give rides, even though she is likely suffering from arthritis and is clearly in pain. 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.”
