Petition update
Breaking News: Nosey the elephant is SAFE!
CompassionWorks International

Nov 10, 2017 — Friends:

We are thrilled to share the amazing news that today an Alabama county took possession of Nosey through court order, and she is being transported to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee pending a future hearing to determine whether she will be permanently seized from the Liebel family.

This is of course an outstanding result and reason to be hopeful about Nosey’s future, though please be mindful that future legal challenges exist to ensure her permanent placement in sanctuary.

As CompassionWorks International learns more, or as there are actions you can take to support the seizure of Nosey, we will continue to update this petition.

Supporting Nosey and other elephants that continue to languish in cruel circus life takes a village!, and we thank you so much for being a part of ours. To continue to support our work to combat circus abuse, please visit

Thank you once again for all of your actions for Nosey, your vigilance in notifying us when you have seen her or any traveling performing animal, and for supporting CWI in our efforts to put an end to circus cruelty once and for all.

For the animals,
Carrie LeBlanc
Executive Director
CompassionWorks International

  1. Finally! I’ve been signing petitions for years. I hope she feels well enough to enjoy her new life. If the USDA weren’t so useless, she would have been free years ago.
