Mayor Smiley, The Kewanna Fall Festival in Kewanna, Ind., is currently teaming up with infamous exhibitor Hugo Liebel to host performances with the suffering elephant Nosey, despite abundant evidence of Liebel's decades-long neglect of her. Liebel was recently ordered to pay a penalty to settle nearly three dozen charges of violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act, including repeatedly chaining Nosey so tightly that she could barely move allowing dangerous, unsupervised public contact with her and denying her necessary veterinary care. I urge you to cancel any plans to feature Nosey immediately!
Please be humane and cancel these elephant performances. This elephant is suffering and is being abused. P L E A S E!
