NOSEY DESERVES TO RETIRE TO A SANCTUARY because currently NOSEY the elephant is carted around from one small circus to another, often a city a day, suffering from a terrible skin condition, losing weight, fed poorly, and regularly in dangerous contact with the public. In December 2011, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) formally charged the circus and its owner Hugo Liebel with 36 violations of the Animal Welfare Act . An affidavit from a circus employee recounts Liebel's affinity for bullhooks and electric prods and details one incident in which Nosey was staked by all four legs and beaten with a bullhook by Liebel. Liebel also instructed other workers to beat her with objects such as shovel handles and sledge hammers. The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee will underwrite the expenses of moving elephants to Tennessee and their ongoing care for life. Their experienced staff is available to help prepare the elephant for transfer and manage the elephant’s safe loading and travel in their custom designed elephant transport trailer. The case USDA vs. Leibel Family Circus hearing (docket#12-0103)  is scheduled for January 15, 2013.

SIGN THIS PETITION ASKING JUDGE JANICE BULLARD TO CONFISCATE NOSEY THE ELEPHANT SO THAT SHE MAY RETIRE IN TENNESSEE WHERE SHE CAN FINALLY LIVE LIFE AS AN ELEPHANT.

USDA Hearing Judge Honorable Janice Bullard, USDA -DOCKET#12-0103
