Petition update · The fight for Nosey unfortunately continues… · Change.org

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 cwint.org/donate 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.

Petition update · TODAY: For National Cheese Lover’s Day, ask Little Caesars for vegan cheese! · Change.org

Jan 20, 2018 — Help make National Cheese Lover’s Day fun for everyone by asking Little Caesars for vegan cheese TODAY! Just submit a comment to the company at http://bit.ly/LCvegancheese — use our sample text below!

Millions are going dairy-free for their health, animals, and the environment — but Little Caesars has yet to catch up with its competitors, including Pizza Hut UK, Domino’s Australia and US-based chains like Mellow Mushroom and Blaze Pizza, that are already dishing up dairy-free cheese. The chain has a huge opportunity to get a slice of a massive, growing consumer market by offering vegan cheese, but it needs to hear from YOU first!

TODAY, tell Little Caesars to celebrate National Cheese Lover’s Day by opening up its menu to non-dairy cheese lovers, too! Just visit http://bit.ly/LCvegancheese and use our sample comment below or a polite one of your own.

SAMPLE COMMENT: Happy National Cheese Lover’s Day! I hope you’ll use this opportunity to serve ALL cheese lovers by offering vegan cheese! While milk sales slump, the dairy alternatives market is soaring–and your competitors like Pizza Hut UK and Domino’s Australia, as well as US chains Mellow Mushroom and Blaze Pizza, are already getting a slice of the action. And according to international restaurant consultants Baum + Whiteman, 2018 will see the widespread adoption of vegan cheese on pizza and burger chain menus. You can attract a massive, growing consumer base that’s consistently seeking dairy-free dining options by offering vegan cheese. Please become a pizza industry leader and add vegan cheese to your menu today!

Don’t forget to email info@cok.net with any response you get from the company. Thanks for helping us spread compassionate eating nationwide!

People should have the choice of vegan or regular cheese.

Puyallup Water Warriors & Redefine Tacoma

Dec 18, 2017 — At 5:30 am this morning, several hundred people gathered outside all three entrances to the construction site for Puget Sound Energy’s fracked gas LNG facility. Several water protectors chained themselves together at the gates and supporting water protectors stood in solidarity and song. When news of the devastating train wreck near Olympia, 30 miles south, broke, leaders immediately led everyone in prayer for the victims and their families. The day continued peacefully in prayer and solidarity. One activist and one elder were arrested – we will keep you updated on their situation.

You can see several live feeds of the action on Native Daily News’ Facebook page. Here is one example: http://bit.ly/2BwvxCe.

Petition update · Alert! Nosey’s Owners Arrested This Morning! · Change.org

CompassionWorks International

Dec 16, 2017 — Friends,

While we had intended on not providing a new update until we have a verdict from Nosey’s trial, we received some stunning news just moments ago: the “owners” of Nosey the elephant have been arrested for charges of animal cruelty related to Nosey!

The Liebels are being processed into jail in Lawrence County, Alabama as I type this update. To obtain the most up-to-date information on this new development, please follow us on our social media channels. The links are listed at the bottom of this post.

We can also share that the trial for Nosey took place yesterday and went on for an extremely long 10.5 hours during which time both sides presented their case. During the trial, the veterinarian for the prosecution shared that Nosey has had x-rays completed that prove she suffers from osteoarthritis. When she arrived at the sanctuary, she was also found to have a urinary tract infection, roundworm, and an ongoing severe skin disorder, which has caused deep and painful cracks in her skin that were also riddled with infection. This disorder has been present for some time, and causes her pain as she moves.

In short, Nosey needs the ongoing care of a professional veterinarian in order to live her best life, which is NOT something the Liebel family can or will provide.

The judge will be issuing a written decision in the near future. CompassionWorks International has already filed a request to be immediately notified when that decision has been filed. At that time, we will provide yet another update on the fight for Nosey!

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 cwint.org/donate. Donations are currently being matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous donor.

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.

THE TIME IS NOW! Act to Help Preserve the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
Michael Cianos and Frank Escalona
Baltimore, MD

Dec 11, 2017 — Dear Supporters,

The moment is upon us to take action in our fight to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. PLEASE take a moment today to call the following House Representatives and urge them to continue their leadership and outspoken support for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge by doing everything they can to insist that Arctic drilling is removed from the bill.

PLEASE NOTE: The following representatives are already working to keep Arctic drilling out of the final bill. We are calling to THANK THEM and to REINFORCE THEIR EFFORTS. Our decision to call these individuals is a result of extensive research and deliberation.

Dan Donovan [R-NY]: (202) 225-3371
Frank Lobiondo [R-NJ]: (202) 225-6572
Brian Fitzpatrick [R-PA]: (202) 225-4276
Ryan Costello [R-PA]: (202) 225-4315

IF ASKED BY A RECORDING IF YOU ARE A CONSTITUENT, select “Yes.” Then tell them later that you are not, but that you are working in their district alongside environmental organizations to bring awareness to the Representatives’ views on this issue.

Remember, we’re working not only to protect the Arctic, but also to show that our democracy still works. The people DO NOT want drilling in the Arctic. Here is a poll from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication to prove it: http://climatecommunication.yale.edu/publications/americans-oppose-drilling-arctic-national-wildlife-refuge/

There is bipartisan alignment AGAINST this provision–we must not stop our fight now. Please take a few moments to call the numbers above, and tell your friends to do the same. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT UPDATE TO SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS.

Also, please share Robert Redford’s video from the NRDC: https://twitter.com/NRDC/status/940234392617697280

Thank you again for all your support. Let’s do this!

BREAKING NEWS: Water Protectors Lock Down at Tacoma LNG Site
Puyallup Water Warriors & Redefine Tacoma

Dec 11, 2017 — Friends,

Early this morning, two water protectors locked themselves to a crane 60 feet high at the LNG build site in the Port of Tacoma. They are participating in direct action to call attention to a dangerous facility that is being built without permits, and against the wishes of the Tacoma community.

You can watch a live feed of the action and leave messages of support here: http://bit.ly/2jOirsj

Right now it’s very foggy out, but the water protectors are holding strong, and we are outside with them. For realtime updates follow Native Daily Network who has covered the story from the beginning.

Petition update · Counting down to a court date for Lamby! · Change.org

Dec 7, 2017 — Dear Friends of Lamby the Dog,

As we cross the 100,000 signature threshold, we want to say THANK YOU for taking time to sign the petition asking the courts to reconsider the order to have her destroyed. Destroyed. That’s the legal term for putting a dog to death and it makes your blood run cold.

At any moment, the Municipal Court judge in Dallas is going to announce a new date/time for a hearing on Lamby which will decide whether she dies or can have a second chance at life with a rescue group or in a sanctuary. The attorneys – who are working pro bono — have said they expect a bond to be required by the court in the amount of $2,000 to $5,000 in addition to court filing fees.

Please help with this next stage of this challenge by contributing to Lamby’s 2nd Chance Fund at https://www.gofundme.com/lamb-of-gods-2nd-chance-fund.

If only 8% of your donated a single $1, we could ensure the funds are available to help Lamby at this critical time!

Once this case is over, any monies not applied to expenses and Lamby’s welfare will be contributed to worthwhile rescue groups and charities that are helping dogs recover from abuse.

BACKGROUND: Lamb of God (Lamby) is a mixed-breed female dog that has been used as a prop by an aggressive panhandler in the Dallas entertainment districts. Lamby was forced to wear comical hats and glasses that cut deep into her fur by rubber bands while she was restrained within a little milk crate that was strapped to a bicycle’s handlebars and forced to pose for photos in exchange for money that went into the pockets of the panhandler. Witnesses have seen the panhandler feed Lamby candy instead of a proper diet and he had an astounding 16 warrants for his arrest. For months, citizens in these entertainment districts have called law enforcement and Dallas Animal Rescue to help get the dog out of her abusive situation.

Petition update · An Update on Nosey the Elephant · Change.org

Nov 20, 2017 — Dear friends:

As many of you know by now, Nosey was lawfully seized from the Liebel family on November 9th in Lawrence County, Alabama. The local animal control officer, Kim Carpenter, became concerned for Nosey after finding her chained and standing in her own waste. Carpenter also claims that Nosey seemed stressed and her travel arrangements were inadequate. The courts agreed that further investigation into the issue was warranted and remanded Nosey into the care of Lawrence County pending an additional trial. The County felt Nosey would receive excellent treatment at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee (TES) while awaiting her court date, and that is where she is living at the moment.

TES has provided some amazing photos of Nosey enjoying her freedom. We have included one here, but you can see more of Nosey at TES by visiting their Facebook page.

According to a news article that was released yesterday in the DecaturDaily.com, the trial to determine Nosey’s fate could take place as early as this week. We will continue to update this petition as new information comes into our office.

Many, many of you are asking us: “what can I do??”, and we genuinely appreciate your concern. At this juncture, sadly, there are no actions you can take to help Nosey in her court case. The case is in the hands of the Lawrence County prosecutor, and we can assure you that Lawrence County is receiving all of the information they need to adequately speak on behalf of Nosey. We flew to the east coast last week to have conversations regarding Nosey’s situation with those involved, and we ask you to please trust us that no further action is needed from the public. In this instance, we must let the professionals involved do their jobs undistracted, so as to not compromise Nosey’s case.

If the courts choose to return Nosey to the Liebel family, our work continues; however, the Liebel family still have many obstacles to clear in order to keep Nosey. Currently they have been denied a permit to keep Nosey in Florida, so an additional hearing will await them if they return to Florida with her.

CWI is closely monitoring the situation and developing contingency plans if she is released. Please continue to read our updates for any future action you may be able to take. We also ask that you continue to share this petition, so that we can reach more individuals with information about Nosey as this case proceeds.

We also encourage you to support ALL elephants confined to the circus by speaking out against circus cruelty at every opportunity, and working toward passing local law in your area to ban the use of elephants in traveling entertainment. If you need assistance, or a circus travels to your area, please contact us at info@cwint.org.

To support our work to end circus cruelty, we gratefully accept tax-deductible donations of any amount to: cwint.org/donate.

Thank you once again for caring about Nosey and supporting the efforts to free her and all elephants from the cruelty of circus life.

Petition update · Help stop Ireland’s greyhound industry from receiving massive state funding! · Change.org

Petition to Ban horrific Hare Coursing Cruelty in Ireland
John Fitzgerald
Kilkenny, Ireland

Nov 15, 2017 — This shocking picture, taken earlier this month, shows a man throwing a live greyhound off the pier at Hartlepool, County Durham, England, into the freezing North Sea. A family witnessed the incident and reported it to police. Sadly, this is typical of what awaits many greyhounds once their racing days are over or their owners’ tire of them.

Coincidentally, Ireland’s government plans to hand over a €16 million subsidy to the country’s greyhound industry despite knowing the fate that awaits the unfortunate dogs.

The Irish Council Against Blood Sports (ICABS) is asking people to send messages to the Irish parliament, urging that this funding is withheld in view of the widespread cruelty and corruption that besets this appalling industry. Here is the ICABS statement:

The government is poised to hand over another massive €16 million in funding for the cruel greyhound industry. This month, TDs will have an opportunity to vote on this funding. Using the template letter below, or a personal letter of your own, please join us in urging TDs to vote against the funding. With numerous revelations in the past 12 months about cruelty, doping, injuries and killing of greyhounds, our politicians should not hesitate to say NO to further funding.
Since 2001, the greyhound industry has received nearly a quarter of a billion euros of taxpayers’ money. Such funding should be redirected away from a cruel and crumbling gambling industry and into struggling community groups, health bodies, sports clubs, animal rescue centres, etc.

Following is a sample letter…or you may wish to send a brief message. Below you’ll find the email addresses of Irish members of parliament…in lists. Just email your message to your own email address, having pasted the lists (one list at a time) into the “blind backup copy” (BBC) line.

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear Deputy,
I am writing to urge you to vote against the proposed additional €16 million in funding for the greyhound industry.

This is an industry which is not only cruel – dogs are injured/mutilated/dumped/killed – it is also doing untold damage to Ireland’s international reputation. In the summer, the case of a greyhound which tested positive for cocaine on three occasions generated a massive amount of negative media coverage around the world. The ongoing export of Irish greyhounds to countries such as Pakistan and China, where little or no animal welfare standards exist, is similarly denting our image.

The Irish public is increasingly rejecting greyhound racing – evident in a 50 per cent fall in track attendance and a 58 drop in sponsorship.

This has been accelerated by a string of revelations (Prime Time, Drive Time, Claire Byrne Live, etc) exposing the injuries, killing and doping of greyhounds. Minister Andrew Doyle’s presentation of a farcical “Personality of the Year Award” this week to a greyhound trainer who was fined in February after a greyhound tested positive for a prohibited substance will further hasten the industry’s demise.

The greyhound industry is undoubtedly a dying industry and it is wrong for the government to squander taxpayers’ money on propping it up – particularly when there are so many community groups, health bodies, sports clubs, animal rescue centres and charities crying out for funds.

I urge you to please vote against the Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2018.

Thank you.
Yours sincerely,

Save Mom’s Home

Nov 12, 2017 — After a long and uncertain summer, we are extremely happy to report that we have reached a settlement deal with Wells Fargo. Mom’s house is now foreclosure free and she will be able to spend the rest of her life in her home!

This is a hard won dream come true for our family and we could not have come this far without your generous support. We thank each and every one of you who signed our petition and donated funds to help save Mom’s home. You made a difference!

We give special thanks to The Foreclosure Resisters who flew us down to Florida to attend the Wells Fargo Shareholders Meeting this past April where we made our personal appeal to CEO, Tim Sloan. Our presentations made a convincing argument whereby Mr. Sloan was moved to offer his pledge to work with us to Save Mom’s Home.

Together we have shown action can create a miracle!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Mom’s Family
