Please help to rescue an abused elephant named Nosey

The fight for Nosey unfortunately continues…
CompassionWorks International

Feb 3, 2018 — Friends,

This morning we learned the unfortunate news that yesterday the Liebel family filed an appeal in Lawrence County, Alabama courts.

The Liebels have filed the appeal in an attempt to regain custody of Nosey from Lawrence County, which placed Nosey at a sanctuary in Tennessee following her seizure last year.

While, yes, the judge did find in Nosey’s favor and Nosey won her court case last January, Nosey’s case will now be heard by a jury. The family has secured a new lawyer and have filed the appropriate paperwork with the courts, as is their right under the law.

This does mean that Nosey’s ability to remain in sanctuary is in jeopardy and will be in the hands of a jury. However, there is no action you can take as this matter will now be decided by the court system.

If you have questions about Nosey’s case, we encourage you to read through the other updates we have made to this petition, as we have provided a thorough and detailed summary of Nosey’s situation via these regular updates over the last three years.

The best way to ensure that Nosey and NO animal suffers inside the circus is to continue to protest the circus, work toward passing local laws in your community, and spread awareness about circus cruelty with your family and friends.

At CWI, we fight against circus cruelty every single day and already this year have staged dozens of circus protests. Please visit to continue to support our work and to stand beside us as we fight for Nosey, Anna Louise, Bo, Cindy, Jenny, and numerous other elephants still suffering behind the big top.

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.

We will continue to keep this petition open and active until Nosey’s life in sanctuary is secured forever.

For the animals,
Carrie LeBlanc, M.A.
Executive Director
