Bless you Nosey, may you live every day from here on in at The Elephant Sanctuary. Free from chains, bullhooks, people riding your aching back, and daily abuse!
We will never stop fighting for your freedom and well being!!

Not once have you seen any emotion on how he cares about her except the money he is losing. Over 200 violations wants to finish the shows, but wait wants to take her home to retire? Can't do both. Pls do some research on what has been going on here. Such cruelty.. praying Nosey stays where elephants can be elephants, not just a money maker for someone who beats you. Just look at the difference in the pictures and tell me Nosey does not finally know what happiness is.

So which is it? He said he’s lost “thousands and thousands of dollars” because of contracts he signed for shows in Florida and can’t fulfill because his animals were taken away. (Neglecting to mention that his Florida permit has been revoked.)


“ … I just want to take Nosey home and retire her. I have 25 acres there. She’ll live on it where she’s lived the past 34 years.”

It's one or the other. Typical of this circus with 200 violations of the Animal Welfare Act and counting. I think we all know why he wants his animals back, and it is NOT so they can retire.
