No animal, even a performing animal, should be mistreated in any form... Nosey needs to be taken from this owner's grasp and moved to a more human environment for the remainder of her life where she can be rewarded with retirement form work and good care including good vet care as well...

This precious elephant must be allowed to live her remaining years in a sanctuary, where she can form relationships with other elephants and live in a family group, able at last to express her natural behaviour. Elephants are extremely sensitive and social animals and need the company of other elephants in order to feel secure and happy. This individual does not care about, nor look after Nosey, and it is up to the authorities to ensure that her wellbeing and happiness are paramount. She should not be used as a money-making venture by this cruel individual. She needs to be allowed to have a happy life. It is her right.

I have signed this and several other petitions for this poor elephant. The USDA REALLY needs to get their act together and take her away from the jerk who "owns" her. I hope soon she will be in a safe place, with other elephants, and that she will be allowed to live out the rest of her life in peace.

Circuses should be banned from keeping animals for exhibition. Not only because of the abuse to which they are exposed, which in itself, would be the biggest impediments, but because it is their habitat. These animals are removed from their environment by hunters payments and then smuggled with the silent complicity of the authorities. Sign Mar 15th.

Noted with a sad heart, signed with comment below, twittered and google shared. TY Cher.

How many times are you going to allow this man to get away with what amounts to torture for this poor elephant? You must take action and remove Nosey from this animal abuser immediately. I think by now, the evidence shows that he is not fit to care for any animals, let alone one that is as emotionally and intellectually sensitive as an elephant. She needs to be released to a sanctuary where she can get proper veterinary care and be able to live out the rest of her life with other elephants as is natural in the wild.

Noted and signed, hoping this poor baby will be saved from the hands of her abuser.

Yet another example of the exploitation of animals for selfish purposes and monetary gain and with total indifference to their emotional and physical needs, let alone well-being. It would be truly great if we could say that this is not rampant. Saddening a hundred times!

Noted with sadness for this long suffering elephant Nosey who is still in the hands of this monster,this has been going on far too long WHY can't you free her and send her to a sanctuary so she can enjoy the company of other elephants and be free from stress,pain and isolation!!!!!!!!!!!!! How very cruel and disgusting to keep her in heavy chains that she cannot even lie down and not to see to her skin infection that must cause so much suffering to this magnificent elephant,WHY can she not be taken from this dispicable owner and be retired to a sanctuary to feel grass under her feet instead of concrete,have a heart and please to the right thing for NOSEY!!!!! Poor elephants suffer so much in this world what with poaching them for their ivory and keeping them locked up in zoos or travelling circuses,its time to end this cruelty,elephants are here to enjoy their life and to be admired not for making money out of them!!!!!!!!!!!
