A Protest in Davenport?


The world-famous Nosey the elephant is coming to Davenport, Florida, today (2/3/17) in what is expected to be a mixed welcome. Word on the street is that at about 6:30 pm today, about an hour before the Nosey circus opens, protesters are planning to gather.

Nosey is famous around the world and by A-list celebrities because of the life of this poor elephant. Captured at just two-years-old, Nosey has no elephant friends and lives a dark lifestyle. The conclusion is that Nosey’s owners are abusive and neglectful and that Nosey deserves to live in a sanctuary.

I met Nosey long before I knew her name at one of Davenport’s past circus events. It was the first time I left a circus sad. Unless you have no empathy at all, you could see Nosey was sad. It’s time to retire this elephant.

nosey-life-for-elephantNosey has her own website, the most active page for her, and she has two Facebook pages:

For those who want to say a word to Nosey’s sponsor, the Davenport Lions Club, check out their Facebook page, and here’s the address and phone number for the Lion’s corporate office.
