Save Nosey the Elephant

This petition had 4,931 supporters


Nosey the Elephant needs our help!  Recently, a man by the name of Hugo Liebel, brought Nosey to Central Florida to set up a fundraiser to open a zoo that closed many years ago. Nosey is being kept in a small enclosure (tent) where she has little moving room. Also, attached to her back, is a saddle which allows people to pay for a ride.  My wife and I visited yesterday to observe what was going on. We stayed off property and watched from the grass along the highway. Yes, the highway. She is being kept in a tent in a parking lot along the side of a busy highway. Keep in mind, Florida temps reach close to 90 right now. My wife and I were causing no harm, but I was simply taking photos. It is heartbreaking. I could see her eyes when I zoomed in with my camera. Full of sadness. She is sick and lonely. She has suffered decades of abuse.  Liebel has been fined more than 200 times. Why is he still able to keep this animal? Something needs to change. It needs to change quickly!  Please help us get this beautiful animal to a place where she belongs! To where she can live her life happy. Without people on her back, or hitting her with 2x4's. Where she has enough food and water. Where she can play. Peta is already aware and needs the community to come together to help save this animal and any others the Liebel's use for entertainment.   Be their VOICE! Stand with us and stop them! Stand up and fight for our county!  http://www.peta.org/action/action-alerts/nosey-elephant-florida/
