Abuse. And more abuse. When will it stop? Where are people’s sense of humanity? Why are so many people so heartless!
Elephants are sweet, sensitive, affectionate, devoted, loving beings. They mourn their dead just like humans. They suffer being jailed in cement cages at zoos and being abused for entertainment arenas. Not to mention all the ivory trade poaching for their tusks, killing them in front of their own babies.
And the babies cry by their mother’s side for days and days, just like humans. Babies are taken away from their mothers so that they can be whipped into shape to entertain humans. And their mother’s cry and cry, just like humans.
Elephants are sentient beings who have families, just like humans. They are playful too, when they are left in their own natural surroundings, protected from horrible people. But how horrible Nosey and other entertainment animals feel with the bull hook that harms them daily? That is the only way circuses get the elephants to stand on their front legs. Elephants are not meant to stand on their front legs. Their huge sizes require standing on all 4 legs. And viewers don’t even think of the abuse that got the elephants on their front 2 legs.
Animals feel. They feel all the pain and emotions that people feel. Why can’t people feel the pain that they are cause animals and these elephants?
www.SaveNoseyNow.org, established in 2014, has been fighting hard to help Nosey. They are located in Florida. On their website, they provide information about Nosey’s abuse and health, along with her history. Nosey, as other captive elephants, are kept in horrible conditions, small, airless, boxcars, small trailers, without exercise, with poor diets. It is any wonder that they develop arthritis, foot infections, stress, and early death? Is this want the audience wants when they go to circuses and carnival rides?
What is the current status of Nosey? She has been alone for 30 years, in solitary. Nosey has health problems, both physically and psychologically. She is confined, chained, abused with a painful bull hook, with improper diet, exposure to extreme temperatures. She is forced to give rides to humans and entertain while under severe pain. All this has been witnessed and reported to the authorities, who have done nothing to help. The owners Have Trunk Will Travel have been cited by the USDA with violations of the Animal Welfare Act.
Keep tweeting and sharing this information. Help send Nosey to a sanctuary like the Elephant Sanctuary in TN or PAWS in CA.
Boycott entertainment to help abused animals and Nosey.

Here is a great way to save taxpayer dollars. And even better, a way to save animals.
The government is supposed to protect all our country, yet they spend about $12-$15 billion tax dollars every year for wasteful experiments on loving animals … cats, dogs, monkeys and other animals. These experiments are brutally cruel. They are useless. Animal lovers and taxpayers aren’t aware of all of this and haven’t approved these experiments.
The White Coat Waste Project, under the leadership of its president Anthony Bellotti, is fighting back. The White Coat Waste Project is the recipient of six “Congressional Waste Warrior” awards. They are helping abused animals by
investigating and analyzing these government experiments, the abuse, and the cost,
educating the public about these abuses,
building a coalition to resolve the issues.
Sample abuses (as per http://www.whitecoatwaste.org/the-facts/):
For the first time, there will be an audit of the government’s animal labs, thanks to the bi-partisan support, led by Representatives Ken Calvert (R-CA) and Dina Titus (D-NV). See http://www.FactAct.org
Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Reps. Ken Calvert (R-Calif.), Tom Marino (R-Pa.), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.) and Dina Titus (D-Nev.) were honored by the White Coat Waste Project for their efforts in these initiatives.

A vegan diet saves animals and the environment. Mercy for Animals is an awesome organization which is constantly helping abused animals. I just saw their latest statistics on the beneficial effects of eating a vegan diet. A great reminder to those who are not vegan.
Meet a wonderful organization that is helping abused animals “from idiot humans”.
Since March 2011, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue has rescued over 1300 dogs from shelters across the country. This non-profit, all volunteer network of rescuers transports dogs from pounds in the rural south, dogs that are on the ‘kill lists’ in high kill pounds. Some of those pounds practice inhumane methods of euthanizing the dogs. Some have over a 90% kill rate.
The loving people at Badass utilize professional rescue transporters to ensure that the ride up from these pounds to Brooklyn are comfortable and stress-free. The dogs are taken to foster homes for training and some get adopted. Badass takes meticulous steps to finding an appropriate match, including personal references, a vet reference and a home visit before they allow the adoption to take place.
In addition, rescued dogs provide medical care, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, tests for heartworm and other medical services.
Please visit their website http://www.badassbrooklynanimalrescue.com to find out more about their wonderful efforts, to foster a dog, volunteer, or donate.
