Aug 2, 2018 —
Yesterday the news broke that the USDA is initiating a proceeding to terminate Hugo Liebel’s federal exhibitor license. Without this license, Liebel would no longer be allowed to force Nosey to perform in second-rate circuses or provoke her to give rides in parking lots. He is losing his battle to regain custody of Nosey at every turn.
Because this situation is not entirely resolved, we will continue to keep this petition open, and to provide updates when possible on Liebel’s exhibitor license and pending court cases.
While Nosey inches closer and closer to a life of permanent sanctuary, many other elephants are still suffering in circus life. CompassionWorks International has been tracking numerous other elephants, including Tracy and Lisa who are currently confined at Circus World in Baraboo, Wisconsin. As we did on numerous occasions for Nosey, we captured important investigative video of Tracy and Lisa, which experts determined proved that both elephants are experiencing significant gait issues. We hope that you will join us in our effort to seek justice for Tracy and Lisa by signing our newest petition: https://www.change.org/p/scott-o-donnell-circus-world-stop-using-animal-acts
At CWI, we fight against circus cruelty every single day. Please visit cwint.org/donate to continue to support our work and to stand beside us as we continue to fight for Nosey, Viola, Isa, Tracy, Becky, 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 will not stop fighting until the use of animals in the circus is relegated once and for all to the history books.
For the animals, Carrie LeBlanc, M.A. Executive Director CompassionWorks International https://www.facebook.com/CompassionWorksIntl/ https://www.instagram.com/compassionworks/ https://twitter.com/cwintl
