Circus handler Hugo Liebel who faced charges from USDA for keeping Nosey the elephant chained so tightly that she could not move or lie down, was essentially let off the hook by USDA with a small fine of $7500.Worse, he was allowed to keep Nosey.

#834. Shared. I am beginning to think that Liebel and the Secretary of Agriculture are related! Liebel should have had to give up Nosey years ago! And then he gets a slap on the wrist? Put Nosey and Mali in the most beautiful loving sanctuary together so they can learn what love is and have a happy ending. What do ya think Sir Paul McCartney? So sad... We're trying to help you Nosey!

This is so important - Nosey's case has seen many petitions and no action... Liebel manages to squirm out of his responsibities while the authorities have given him many chances to do what is right for Nosey. He even renamed her "Tiny" to try to throw off his reputation and the animal rights petitions... Nosey is expected to work giving rides to children (many at once) before showtime... and then she must shuffle round on her knees in the big ring in a most unnatural manner. If you see this petition... please sign it immediately... Nosey is sick with bad feet, poor skin and she is kept in chains for most of her day with little more than a bit of straw to eat. She needs us!

Noted. It was bound to come up again, since Liebel was let off so easy in respect to the multitude of problems he created for this poor animal. Thank you for bringing the latest to us, Cher!

What a disgrace Nosey should have a much better life so should be taken off this idiot and transferred to a sanctuary! The number who've signed this petition, as it seems to have been around for a while, is very disappointingly low - MANY MORE NEED TO SIGN AND QUICKLY!!!!!

There does seem to be something "funny" about Liebels's "punishment" not fitting his crimes.
