Moulton, Ala. – Below, please find a statement from PETA Foundation Vice President and Deputy General Counsel Delcianna Winders in response to the Lawrence County, Ala., District Court’s issuance of a seizure order for Nosey, an elephant abused for years by notorious animal exhibitor Hugo Liebel:
Nosey, the lame elephant found tightly chained, confined in her own waste, and without proper shelter, was removed from conditions very familiar to all who have tracked her abuse for years. PETA thanks local authorities for seizing Nosey and the court for its decision today to transfer this long-suffering elephant into caring hands. PETA pledges to continue working in her behalf until she’s settled in a spacious sanctuary home at last.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment,” and more information is available here.
