VICTORY for Nosey in Texas!

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.
