Target: Brook Hall, Entertainment Director of The Great Lakes Medieval Faire
Goal: Have the Great Lakes Medieval Faire cancel Nosey the elephant’s appearance.
Nosey the elephant has been mistreated and taken advantage of for far too long. Despite public outcry, Nosey remains with her exhibitor Hugo Liebel. Liebel has a long list of animal welfare citations on record that go all the way back to 1993, but has been contracted to appear at the Great Lakes Medieval Faire in Ohio.
A veterinarian and elephant expert stated that Nosey’s case is “the worst, most prolonged, documented example of an uncorrected case of suffering and abuse in an elephant I have ever reviewed.” Nosey has reportedly been seen confined to small parking lots with no food, water or shelter. She also often displays signs of stress and will rock back and forth continuously.
Sign this petition to demand the Great Lakes Medieval Faire cancel Nosey’s appearance. Nosey’s suffering needs to be put to an end. She deserves a happy end to her life, not one where she continues living in captivity for human entertainment.
Dear Ms. Hall,
This year at your festival, Nosey the elephant is scheduled to make an appearance. Nosey has been mistreated and taken advantage of for years. It is time this abuse is put to an end.
Her exhibitor, Hugo Liebel, has been forcing Nosey to give rides to people despite her arthritis and numerous stress behaviors. Liebel has a long list of citations that date back all the way to 1993. Nosey has also reportedly been seen trapped in hot parking lots with no shelter, food or water. It is cruel and inhumane what Liebel has been putting Nosey through.
Please consider canceling Nosey’s appearance at your fair. She is in great pain, physically and mentally, and it is time her misery be put to an end. She belongs in a sanctuary where she can relax, play, and enjoy her days with friends.
[Your Name Here]
