Along with millions of others, I have been signing petitions for years to help free the elephant Nosey from the cruelty foisted upon her by Hugo Liebel, an animal exhibitor well-known for his inhumane treatment of Nosey. Thanks to all those signatures on petition after petition, authorities in Moulton, Alabama, FINALLY got a good look at the cruelty Nosey has had to endure for years. Nosey was found chained, surrounded by her own waste, and with no shelter for her in sight. Nosey arrived yesterday at the amazing 1200-acre United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) licensed non-profit, The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee.. For me, I do wish the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) would kick things up several notches to act more quickly when it comes to removing animals from abusive situations. Nosey is now being evaluated regarding her health, being fed the best of the best foods that elephants love, and will soon be able to enjoy the companionship of the other elephants at the sanctuary.

That is good news and in my opinion this person needs to be treated like he treated Nosey. Give him a taste of his own medicine. Animals have feelings just as we do.

@jstory07 Yes, humans often forget that animals can have their hearts broken too.

Hohenwald -- How come that there is a German place name in Tennessee? The meaning is: 'high forest'.

Well, Tennessee has lovely "high forests," but as to who named it, the research I have done does not say. I suppose a German settler may have given the city its name, but not sure. I do know that Swiss-German settlers came to view Hohenwald for the first time in the1800s.

Thank God, she has finally been freed from abuse and suffering, without proper care or kindness. This is only one situation, but it's one step closer to animal abuse, being stopped in its tracks!:(

I remember signing that as well, what wonderful news that she is finally free of the cruelty. I just hope DT can't undo all the restrictions we've put on hunting predator species, those need to stay in place.

I agree about not undoing the restrictions regarding the hunting of predator species. Many a petition I have signed regarding that issue too.
