Nosey, the lame elephant found tightly chained, confined in her own waste, and without proper shelter, was removed from conditions very familiar to all who have tracked her abuse for years. PETA thanks local authorities for seizing Nosey and the court ..

Who can believe what the cruel owner says? He has exploited and abused Nosey for 34 years.

thank you for this news. I hope the judge sees through the owners lies. I don't see how he wouldn't. that's good news for nosey. I wish nosey the best of luck. she deserves all the happiness - and more. I also thank everybody who wouldn't give up fighting for nosey.

"The truth will always prevail. If you see something bad, people do something bad to animals, I want you to report it but please don’t make something that’s not there," he said during an interview.

If he is so worried about freezing temperatures why wasn't he ever concerned about nosey living in such squalor I will believe the truth when I see it. This family is only in it for money. And is total disregard for a living creature for so many years we have fought for Noseys freedom and I hope that this is the first step of true freedom for a wonderful animal. Thank you for posting..

Thanks for sharing. Jess B, I hope Nosey is allowed to stay at the sanctuary. There's no way an elephant should be chained and confined in a tiny space, no matter what the owner says about her health and well-being.

I really hope the poor animal gets to go to the Elephant Sanctuary. She has had a miserable existence with that scumbag.

Noted - These people need to think of Nosey and her misery first, instead of fighting over a custody battle!!! They apparently are not doing that!!

Nosey deserves to be sent to the Tenn. elephant sanctuary to live out her life and her current owner deserves to be sent to prison for the remainder of his life!
