Nosey Forced to Give Rides Yet Again! Speak Up TODAY!


Keep fighting for Nosey the elephant! This week, Nosey has been hauled to Ohio, where she's being forced to give rides at The Great Lakes Medieval Faire now through August 17. Please urge fair organizers to cancel Nosey's appearance immediately and to pledge never to host Nosey again. Every venue cancellation is a victory, and Nosey needs you to speak up for her!

Nosey's exhibitor, the notorious Hugo Liebel, has been cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) again and again for mistreating Nosey by shackling her with short chains, denying her veterinary care, and failing to handle her safely. Last year, Liebel was ordered to pay $7,500 to settle charges of nearly three dozen animal welfare violations. According to a USDA veterinarian who inspected Nosey in March, one of Nosey's toenails was so overgrown that it was "curling upward and pulling away from the nail bed," creating a risk of pain or "chronic foot care issues." Foot problems can be fatal in elephants. Liebel also endangered the public by leaving a "large opening" in the enclosure where Nosey was being used for rides, which could have allowed children to enter the elephant ride ring and get hurt.

Nosey needs your help! Please join PETA today in politely urging The Great Lakes Medieval Faire to cancel her appearance right away and to pledge never to host her again.
