Nosey in Distress

photos: Action for Nosey Now

When first becoming aware of the plight of elephants in general being exploited it seemed plausible to end their plight due to several issues. First of all, elephants are big and heavy. Second of all, they literally need tons of food. and third of all, they can easily hurt and even kill (intentionally of accidentally) a human being. But sadly, it turned out – as with many animal related issues – that greed and ignorance have turned this battle in an uphill one just like many others.

Nosey the Elephant has been touring the United States for many years. Her owner makes her give rides no matter her physical state. She has been seen with sores on her sides, with wounds on her legs, swaying back and forth in distress. But as long as there are people willing to pay and thereby giving the owner reason to keep her, chances are slim she will be released to an elephant sanctuary, even though the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee has agreed to take her in.

A small group has been fighting for Nosey’s release to this sanctuary diligently. They have  been busy keeping track of Nosey’s whereabouts, have tried to inform people at the sights about the sad physical and psychological state Nosey is in, have tried to get her released, but until today to no avail.

Please spread the news, let friends and family know that paying for rides on any animal’s back is simply no fun for the animal at best, and often painful and crippling for these beings.

Factory farming has led to some of the cruelest forms of animal abuse. Thanks to rising awareness and continuous animal advocacy another company has decided that moving away from cruelty towards animals is a win-win deal. The fast-food chain Wendy’s has pledged to stop buying eggs from caged hens, thereby following Panera Bread, Taco Bell and other food-providing companies.

This shows that petitions can lead to change, and that the voices of those speaking out against animal abuse are being heard.
